  • Inaugural Ball 2010

    Governor Bob McDonnell and First Lady Maureen McDonnell dance the first dance at the Inaugural Ball in Richmond, VA Saturday, Jan. 16, 2010.

On Jan. 16, 2010, Bob McDonnell carried his wife, Maureen, over the threshold of Virginia's Executive Mansion — their state-subsidized home for the next four years.

McDonnell, brown-haired, smiling and self-assured in his morning coat, had just taken the oath of office as the commonwealth's 71st governor, swearing to uphold and defend the constitutions of the United States and Virginia. In this jubilant moment, he was upholding a carefree Maureen, blond and dressed in white, her gold clamshell purse flung open.
