Obama: 'Michelle Will Never Run for Office'
Many Democrats have expressed interest in Michelle Obama running for president in 2020.
Unfortunately for them, President Obama just burst their bubble.
In an interview with "Rolling Stone" magazine published Tuesday, the president said that the first lady has zero plans of ever running for office
"Michelle will never run for office,” Obama explained. "She is as talented a person as I know. You can see the incredible resonance she has with the American people. But I joke that she’s too sensible to want to be in politics."
Three different super PACs have already started pushing for the first lady to run in 2020, but it would appear their efforts will be in vain.
In the interview, the president also discussed his and Michelle’s plans once they leave the White House in January.
“You know, I’m gonna sleep for a couple of weeks when I get out of here, take my wife on a well-deserved vacation,” Obama said. “And I’ll spend time in my first year out of office writing a book, and I’m gonna be organizing my presidential center, which is gonna be focused on precisely this issue of how do we train and empower the next generation of leadership.”
“So I will continue to be very active, and Michelle is going to continue to be very active–and [on] the very thing that brought us here, which is our belief that when you work with people on the ground at a grassroots level, change happens,” he added. “When people feel disconnected from the institutions of government, they can swing back and forth in all sorts of ways.”
