Obama and Biden Show Us Their Moves

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are running again. But this time, not for office.

Demanding jobs aside, the two jogged around the White House in their ties to highlight the need to keep in shape.

"Mr. President, are you ready to move," Biden asked as he entered the Oval Office.

"Absolutely, let's do this thing. Let's move," Obama responded.

The two taped the video as part of first lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move initiative, which aims to reduce childhood obesity.

The video shows the pair running a lap through the hallways of the White House and outside by the rose garden.

At one point, the first family's Portuguese water dogs, Bo and Sunny, watched the two leaders run by.

To celebrate the fourth anniversary of the Let's Move initiative, the first lady asked Americans nationwide to use social media to show how they move.

While making an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's "The Tonight Show" last week, she said if the turnout was large, she had something fun planned.

"If we get enough response we'll have a little surprise. The President and maybe the Vice President will show us how they move," Obama said.

While exercising in a shirt and tie may not be ideal, the President and Vice President did stretch at the end of their lap and drink some water, another part of the Let's Move program.

"After a good workout, you got to drink up," President Obama said in the video.

"Otherwise we are going to be in trouble with Jill and Michelle," Obama added.

Well, home crisis averted.

Biden Jokes About 2016 Announcement

Had it not been the debut night for Seth Myers as the new host of NBC’s “Late Night,” Vice President Joe Biden may have revealed his plans for 2016.

The “Saturday Night Live” alum asked the Vice President if he would share his thoughts on a potential presidential run in 2016.

“I was planning on making a major announcement tonight, but I decided tonight’s your night,” Biden joked. “So I hope you’ll invite me back.”

The Vice President wasn’t ready to make any announcement but Myer’s other first-night guest was quick to respond.

“I’m going to run for president,” said former “SNL” co-star Amy Poehler.

It wasn’t the first time Poehler and Biden have appeared together in front of cameras. Vice President Biden made a cameo on Poehler’s NBC small-town government sitcom “Parks and Recreation” in 2012.

Biden did share some details about the much discussed moment from this year’s State of the Union Address, when he was seen emphatically pointing to an unnamed individual on the House Floor.

“A senior senator said, ‘Look Joe I know you and Barack are friends but don’t stand up on every damn thing he says,’” said the Vice President. “I counted 17 times this particular senator stood up in front of the president. So I went like this to point to him. Talk about a suck up.”

The late night talk shown scene isn’t unfamiliar territory for Biden with this being his third appearance.

He appeared on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno in 2010 and read the Top 10 List on “The Late Show” with David Letterman in 2012.

Biden has not forgotten about daytime television either.

Tuesday he will tape an appearance on “The View.” It will be his fourth time visiting the daytime talk show.
