The Obamas Share An Election Night Memory

In this extremely sweet clip from tonight's 60 Minutes interview with President-elect Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, the Obamas discuss their reaction to the election results, with Michelle Obama describing the moment when it actually hit her that her husband was the next President of the United States: "I remember on the night we watched the returns, on one of the stations Barack's picture came up and it said 'President-elect Barack Obama.' I looked at him and said, 'You are the 44th president of the United States of America. Wow, what a country we live in.'" President-elect Obama just smiles and responds, "How 'bout that?" before bringing up the fact that Michelle also then asked him about taking their daughters, Sasha and Malia, to school the next day.
