17 best photos of President Obama and Michelle holding, kissing in public

It is a rare occurrence in Ghana for national leaders and their partners to display affection in the public. 

Ghanaian leaders hardly bring their partners or family to public places. The monogamous nature of some inhibits them from showing their partners in public.

But not so for US President Barack Obama and Michelle who appear very comfortable holding and kissing in public at various national events.
