Barack Obama’s response to Michelle running for president is incredibly practical and incredibly sweet

If you’ve been on the internet, and are politically aware, you probably know that there’s been a lot of chatter recently. After proving how incredible she is, people are lobbying for Michelle Obama to run for president someday. And, well — we can definitely see it. But does she even want the position? Who knows?

We’re so lucky to live in a time with so many incredible, qualified women in the field of politics. And maybe it was her amazing speeches, paired with her intelligence, and of course her sense of humor considered as well, but Michelle Obama truly speaks to so many of us.

Just recently, Barack Obama spoke out about the outcry for Michelle someday running for his position, and while his response was definitely practical, it was also pretty sweet.

"Michelle will never run for office," he said in an interview with Rolling Stone. (Bummer.)

But, don’t get discouraged yet. Our President padded this out with something we wish someone would say about us.

"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."

While Michelle might have told Barack that she wasn’t interested, we still wouldn’t take this as a hard no. So much can change during a presidential term, and she might have a change of heart.

No matter what she decides to do, we know she’ll be incredibly successful. Selfishly, we just want to see her on our TV screens some more. (And uh, *cough* — in charge of our country.)
