Obama daughters make rare campaign appearance

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — President Barack Obama's daughters are making a rare campaign appearance with their dad at the Democratic convention.

Sasha and Malia Obama sat with their mother, Michelle Obama, near the stage as the president addressed the convention and accepted his party's nomination for a second term. His daughters joined him on the stage after his speech, smiling and waving to the crowd as confetti fell.

Obama says he's proud of his daughters and grateful they could see him speak. But he says he still expects them to go to school on Friday.
