My favorite congresswoman breaks some moves

When you are a politician in a big election year, the eyes of the public are always on you and every little move you make. And, let me tell you, Shelley Berkley can break some moves.

At the Oct. 27 rally for Michelle Obama in Doolittle Park, Berkley was among the estimated 3,000 who turned out for the now-first lady-elect. There were high-powered speeches and some lively music. At one point Michelle Obama pointed out Congresswoman Berkley in the crowd.

So UNLV graduate student and sometime documentary videographer Joe Thompson, who also is working for the Review-Journal on a project to digitally archive our old photograph negatives, turned his camera on the ever effervescent representative.

See for yourself how this congresswoman gets down. But, no, that comment by Obama at the end was not directed at Berkley, but rather the result of a little judicious editing.
