(CNN) - President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, found themselves Monday night in a spot where only few lovebirds have landed: the Kiss Cam at the Verizon Center in Washington.
The first couple appeared on the jumbo screen while sitting on the sidelines of the mens' USA National Team vs. Brazil basketball game.

As the crowd urged the couple to kiss, the president held his arm around the first lady and smiled, but didn't kiss - prompting a wave of boos from the crowd, according to pool reports.
But fans didn't leave entirely disappointed. Not long after the couple shied away from some affectionate display, reporters were brought back into the arena to watch as Obama and his wife re-appeared on the kiss cam, this time with the president going in for a full smooch.
Dear President and Mrs. Obama: You guys are ::great::, and it's refreshing to see you both in this relaxed moment. Everyone reading this, if you have a significant other, hug and kiss them ::regularly::; Show each other the affection that you feel, it's one of ::the:: most important things in any relationship.

No matter what your politics may be you have to say they are a great couple. All the best to the Obama's.
"Bob, will I Iose percentage points if I kiss my wife? Yes? Ok, wait...no?...okay. I'd gain 3 points?! Damn, I thought you said not to. Let's do it again guys..." is probably what happened.
They are a CLASS act!

Wow he will not give her a kiss unless it serves to be politically advantageous. That is true love right there.
The president and the first lady embrace and kiss is genuinely" Middle Class American "
Cool President we have. I wish he could gut his cabinet though

So they didn't kiss, then said, "Wait, reporters, come back!" and then kissed? Weird.

With these clowns leading the country I've had to kiss my retirement and my kids future goodbye!
I think it great that they show their love for one another
well, at least the great divider wasn't busy making laws.
I am so tired of seeing his and michelles face on this website.
Reporters were ushered in to see the President kiss his wife? Awesome love life. I can't kiss you now sweetie, it won't make the news, let's get the reporters in here first.
Funny and very nice, smart and caring couple!
Love for your family reflects on the compassionate president he is...
