Here is Why Michelle Obama Didn’t Run for President


The confession came during a surprise visit to the Lower Eastside Girls Club in Manhattan on Saturday, ahead of an evening appearance at Barclays Center for her “Becoming” book tour.

A beaming Obama was greeted by delighted squeals from 30 girls before the group struck up a conversation and shared bowls of farro and veggies.

“You can ask anything! I am ready,” Obama told the kids.

“How come you didn’t run for president?” one of them said.

Obama cited several reasons, including giving her two daughters a break from a heavy security presence.

She went on to say with a laugh, “I don’t wanna be president! … My path has never been politics. I just happened to marry somebody whose passion was politics. Just because he likes it doesn’t mean that I like it!”

At more than 2 million copies sold, Obama’s “Becoming” was recently named the year’s best-selling hardcover book.
