A picture of President Obama and his wife, Michelle as a young couple was posted to Facebook by the U.S. first lady election morning. Moments later after his victory another photo of the power couple sharing a victory hug emerged.
The sepia image was posted early today on Michelle Obama’s official Facebook page and had the caption: “She voted for him for the same reason she married him – his character. Cast your ballot for President Obama today.”
More than 250,000 ‘likes’ from viewers in seven hours and thousands of comments were posted under the picture.
One user wrote: “I think what I love about you and Barack (Mr. President) as a couple … is how ‘normal’ you are — God bless both of you!!!”
Another wrote: “To you First lady and Mr President, you are the strongest couple I have ever known.
