New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wasn't shy about showing off his dance moves with Jimmy Fallon in the "Evolution of Dad Dancing" on Thursday's The Tonight Show.

Christie shimmied and gyrated, featuring classic moves such as the lawn mower and the honk the horn.

But how do Christie's moves compare with other politicians' dancing? Here is a list of other politicos doing that thing they call dancing.

1. President George W. Bush

In 2007, Bush danced with a West African Dance Company in the Rose Garden of the White House. Bush even jumped in with some drumming. The event was the first time the White House marked Malaria Awareness Day.

2. President Obama

In 2007, then-candidate Obama danced to Beyoncé's Crazy in Love as he was welcomed onstage to Ellen DeGeneres' show. "You got some moves!" DeGeneres said.

3. Rep. John Lewis

Lewis, D-Ga., danced and sang along to Happy by Pharrell Williams in two videos posted to YouTube in March. The 74-year-old congressman tweeted out a link to the videos and wished everyone a "wonderful International Day of Happiness."

4. Rep. Charlie Rangel

In response to Lewis, Rangel, D-N.Y., tweeted a video of himself dancing with the message, "@repjohnlewis My dear friend, you're my personal hero, but you just got served." The video is from Rangel's 80th birthday party in August 2010.

5. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford

The embattled mayor is not afraid to bust a move, even during a council session. Earlier this year, Ford declared Feb. 6 to be Bob Marley Day and, along with the official proclamation, grooved to Marley's One Love.

6. Hillary Clinton

Clinton has been caught on video dancing a bunch. As secretary of State, she clapped and danced in front of a crowd in Johannesburg at a August 2012 event hosted by the South African foreign minister.

Clinton also danced with farmers in Malawi.

And earlier in 2012, Clinton hung out with her female aides in Colombia, drinking beer and busting a move.
