In an interview airing today on NBC’s TODAY program, President Obama said he’s resigned to being a one-term president.
Obama said his wife and daughters aren’t “invested” in him being president either and they would have been fine he decided against running for reelection.
Asked about his family’s reaction to his wanting another term, Obama said: “Michelle and the kids are wonderful in that if I said, `You know, guys, I want to do something different,’ They’d be fine. They’re not invested in daddy being president or my husband being president.”
You know what, President Obama? If you decide not to run for reelection, the American people would be fine too. In fact, many Americans would be perfectly delighted.
