Michelle Obama Tells ABC News She Wants Four More Years

First lady Michelle Obama has told ABC News that–politics aside–she wants four more years to continue her work on behalf of women and young people. “I think there’s so much more work to do. We’ve really just begun to lay the foundation,” Mrs. Obama said in an interview with ABC’s David Muir in Cape Town, South Africa, which will air tonight on ABC World News and Nightline. “I’m passionate about these issues. I want to make sure there’s a footing in them in the same way that my husband does,” she said. “So, more time would be helpful.”

Mrs. Obama is in South Africa on a weeklong trip to promote youth leadership, education and cultural exchanges. In the interview, she says she enjoys the work and wants to continue. “I love the job, I do. I love people and I like having a positive impact.”
