Obama: Family OK With One-Term Presidency

Wednesday, 15 Jun 2011 11:46 AM

President Barack Obama said his family would be fine if he was a one-term president, a sentiment they no doubt share with an expanding field of GOP presidential hopefuls. Obama, in an interview on NBC’s Today show, also revealed that there are days when he feels the same way.

Obama said his family has borne up well under the Washington microscope and added that if First Lady Michelle Obama “didn’t think that what we’re doing is worthwhile in moving the country forward, I think she’d be the first one to say do something else less stressful.”

“Michelle and the kids are wonderful in that if I said, ‘You know what guys, I want to do something different,’ they would be fine,’’ he said. “They’re not invested in daddy being president or my husband being president . . . If family is doing well and Michelle is still putting up with me, then I’ve got enough energy to keep doing the work that I’m doing.’’
