President Obama has the magic touch with crying babies.

In this video, which appears to have been taken at the recent White House picnic for members of Congress (based on the first lady's dress), Michelle Obama holds a crying baby.

"You okay, baby?" the president asks.

Michelle hands the baby to Barack, and the baby immediately stops crying.
