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.
