Woman Mouths "I Love You Barack" During Florida Town Hall Meeting (VIDEO)

During a town hall meeting in Florida today, Obama tried to drum up support for his economic stimulus package. One emotional moment came when an elderly woman, Henrietta Hughes, pleaded for help because she is unemployed and homeless and her struggling to support her family, and Obama promised to do what he could, saying she could speak with his staff after the meeting to speed the process up. He then walked over to her and gave her a kiss.

While the crowd was understandably moved by the exchange, one woman in particular seemed deeply affected. She rises to her feet as soon as Obama comes over, and emphatically mouths the words "I love you, Barack" after he kisses Hughes.
