Daughter knows best: Sasha Obama gives dad some helpful advice on Election Night


Before President Obama's re-election victory speech, his daughter Sasha had some helpful advice for her father: turn around and wave.

Swept up in the euphoria of Tuesday's election night extravaganza in Chicago, President Obama got a helpful reminder from one of his closest advisers before making his acceptance speech.

With the entire first family onstage, Sasha Obama, his 11-year-old daughter, nudged him and reminded him to turn around and "look behind you" to acknowledge the crowd behind the podium in the McCormick Place convention center. In an endearing moment between father and daughter, the president heeded her advice as the crowd in that area roared and waved American flags.
