President Obama managed to cover all his demographic bases at a post-Inauguration “Thank You” party for campaign, White House and Inauguration staffers by having Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett co-headline the event. Via New York Daily News:
A video posted on YouTube showed her performing “Born this Way” while sitting at a sculptural, white piano.
The pop superstar and legendary crooner then took the stage together in a duet of “The Lady Is a Tramp.”
The president and First Lady Michelle Obama arrived at the Washington convention center for the ball just before 9:00pm to cheers from the roughly 10,000 to 15,000 guests in attendance.
“You all clean up pretty good,” the president quipped as he took the stage.
For the first time in our lives, we wish we were White House staffers.
