Obama dances on Ellen show: I'm a better dancer than John McCain

US presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama made a surprise appearance on the Ellen Show yesterday and declared he is a better dancer than rival John McCain.

The candidate appeared via satellite from Miami and accepted Ellen DeGeneres's challenge to prove that he can dance just as well as his wife.

Ellen said: “Let's talk about dancing. Your wife, Michelle, was on the show and she was talking some smack about your moves.”

Obama replied: "Michelle may be a better dancer than me, but I'm convinced I'm a better dancer than John McCain."

Obama then danced on the spot to James Brown’s Get Up Offa That Thing cheered on by fans in Florida and in the studio.

A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
