DENVER (CNN) – Walking out onto the convention stage to deliver her speech Monday night, Michelle Obama leaned down to daughters Malia and Sasha and told them, “I’ve got a surprise for you.”
“Is it the Jonas Brothers?” 10 year-old Malia asked.
“No, it’s not the Jonas Brothers,” she responded. It was a live video feed of “Daddy” from Kansas City.
“In the end she felt that Daddy was a decent second choice,” Obama told supporters attending an economic roundtable in Denver Tuesday afternoon.
Barack Obama says the girls are big fans of the teen band, and were disappointed when they found out they would be in Denver when the band came through their hometown of Chicago.
The Illinois senator – who often tells parents to monitor the music their children listen to – approves of the tween sensations.
“They seem wholesome enough,” he told reporters on his campaign plane in early August. “[The girls are] not thrilled that we’re choosing the convention over the Jonas Brothers.”
