106-year-old Woman Meets, Dances With Obamas


Virginia McLaurin of Washington, D.C., fulfilled her dream of visiting the White House and meeting President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama. She was so overjoyed at meeting "a black president ... and his black wife" that she shuffled a few dances moves and the president had to urge her to "slow down." The video, posted on the White House Facebook page Sunday, had more than 17 million views by Monday morning.
