(CNN) - President Barack Obama watched the first lady's speech at Charlotte's Democratic National Convention on television with daughters, Malia and Sasha, in the Treaty Room of the White House Tuesday.
Michelle Obama made a personal case for her husband's second term saying the president, "knows the American Dream because he's lived it."
The White House released an official photograph of the president and his daughters.
An Obama campaign official said Obama had dinner with his daughters, where they talked about their first day of school, before watching the speech together.
Earlier in the day, Obama campaigned in Virginia.
The DNC is definitely NOT plastic. A bunch of real people with real feelings and respect for each other.
Our President and his daughters (you're so right T'sah!).
God bless them and protect them. You have EVERY reason to be proud of Michelle. She told MY story,our story, the American story.
A speech delivered with HEART and TRUTH.
Obama 2012. Seriously America.
At first I had a hard time going to sleep, then I started to watch Michelle Obama with her fake, quivering voice re-play her same South Side "sob story" - what a bunch of crock! Half way through, I was blessedly asleep.
