‘GANGNAM STYLE,’ OBAMA STYLE?

Yes, those hard-hitting questions keep coming for the candidates, even on Election Day: President Barack Obama was asked by one interviewer Tuesday about the "Gangnam Style" dance craze.

During a radio spot with WZID-FM in New Hampshire, the commander in chief was pressed on whether he and first lady Michelle would do a rendition of the South Korean rapper PSY’s hit, which has hundreds of millions of views on YouTube.

"I just saw that video for the first time," Obama replied. "I think I can do that move. But I’m not sure that the inauguration ball is the appropriate time to break that out."

"Maybe," he concluded, "do it privately for Michelle."

ROMNEY’S LUNCH

For those of you wondering, this nugget just in from Romney’s Wendy’s visit: He ordered a quarter-pounder (no cheese), chili and a Frosty.

It’s been a long few days for sure. "He’s kind of operating on fumes," Romney’s running mate, Paul Ryan, tells the AP, speaking about the presidential candidate and their hectic schedule.

WEDDED TO POLITICS

Talk about being wedded to politics.

Jonathan Carroll and Stephanie McClure of Hoboken, N.J., chose Election Day to form their own perfect union. Well, they figured they didn’t really have a choice.

Carroll says the original plan was to get married at a banquet hall in the shore community of Point Pleasant, but Superstorm Sandy devastated the area. Any thought of waiting beyond Tuesday to tie the knot was wiped away by an oncoming nor’easter that is expected to hit New Jersey on Wednesday and could result in more delays.

So Carroll and McClure said "I do" at Hoboken City Hall on Tuesday, while voters cast ballots across the way.

"You know how they say a rough beginning equates to a smooth ending?" Carroll said. "If that’s the way it goes, it’s going to be cake and ice cream the rest of my life."
