Michelle Obama on Calls for Her to Run for Office: ‘People Don’t Understand How Hard This Is’

Michelle Obama has no intention of running for office, and she spoke to Oprah Winfrey tonight about what it means that there’s such big encouragement for her to do.

President Obama has made it clear she will “never” run for office, and the First Lady affirmed that to Winfrey.

She said that people don’t really understand how hard the job is, and that it’s the kind of thing you don’t “cavalierly just sort of ask a family to do again.”

Obama thinks part of it may have to do with the regret people feel about the election, and the idea of putting her family through public life like that for another 8 years is just too much.

And if there are any conversations among Democrats about her running for office, Obama said, she’s not involved in any of them.
