Maila Obama Won’t Be Factor In Family Staying In Washington

Most people decide if and when they’re going to move within a year, many times inside a few months. But, if you’re living in the White House, moving could be quite a bit more difficult and leaving the presidency even more complicated. Especially with two daughters who no doubt have community ties.

The Obama’s are allowing their 12 year old daughter, Sasha, make the final decision whether they stay in Washington D.C., or head back to Chicago. The fact that they are placing such high consideration for their daughters’ happiness is exceptional. Their other daughter Malia will already be 18 and in college. Sasha will be a sophomore in High School and will probably have made friends and strong connections in the area.

President Obama, in an interview with Barbara Walters, mentions that the women in his life have “made a lot of sacrifices on behalf of my cockamamie ideas, the running for office.”

“Sasha will have a big say in where we are,” President Obama said about the future, in an interview for the “Walters at the White House” special on “20/20” to air Friday night.

When asked who he thought might succeed him in the White House, he answered, “We have some amazing female [public] servants all across the country and there is no doubt that sometime very soon, we’re going to have a female president. I’m confident that she will do a great job,” he added, without naming names.

The president and first lady would be the first presidential family to remain in Washington after term in almost 100 years – the last president was Woodrow Wilson.

The interview with Barbara Walters revealed some personal information about the Obama’s and their daughters. The First Lady, when discussing them, commented, “We try to protect them from too much of the public voice,” and that she isn’t a “big believer in Facebook for young people.”

The fact that Sasha will be able to stay where she has roots, presently at Sidwell Friends School, a private Quaker school should make her feel not only important, but very happy.

    I hate these fake politically correct articles. The reality is that the Obamas are set for life and so are his daughters. On top of being the Presidential family and having connections to everything ….. they are multimillionaires. I hate fake articles trying to equate those in power with average everyday people. It is insulting and hypocritical and delusional.

    Yeah … lets have a female president …. lets see where that gets us …. the woman who literally lied about Benghazi ….she is going to be worse than Obama …..at the end of the day …. lets face it …… Bush…. Obama ….Clinton ….. we will have literally two decades of liars in in office.

    We are the most politically correct country in the world and it is killing us. We don’t do the logical thing. We don’t do the right thing. We only do the politically correct thing. Kind of like this bogus news article here. It is PC but doesn’t deal with reality. Want to see reality? Look at the Obamas tax returns.

    Whoooa – angry just a little? There are droves of millionaires and billionaires who haven’t accomplished anything NEAR presidential. Many were just born.

    But, I see your point – the U.S. is very political. Much more so than any other nation – but we let it happen.
