The Swagged-Out Moment: Giving a pound to his wife Michelle
When It Happened: June 2008
Why It Was So Great: Shortly after he was nominated to be the Democratic candidate in the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama and his wife embraced. Most candidates would have gone with a simple hug and maybe—maybe!—a brief peck on the lips. Not the Obamas! They hugged and then shared a pound, or a "fist bump" as they later called it. It was awesome.
