Michelle Obama Reportedly Dismisses Presidential Bid, Says She Wants 'Thousands of Me's' Instead
Former First Lady Michelle Obama said she is not interested in seeking the presidency like her husband, according to reports.
Through her work with the Obama Foundation, Mrs. Obama said her interactions with American youth have left her with a positive attitude toward the country's political future.
"This is why I'm not going to run for president, because I think it's a better investment to invest in creating thousands of 'me's'," Obama said at an event in New York this week, according to AOL News.
"We don't just need one [Michelle Obama], we need thousands and thousands," she said, according to Business Insider.
Obama said the public is tired of antiquated political ideas and that new blood could engender progress toward shared goals.
"I'm optimistic about the future," she said. "There are some bright young people out there."
