Is First Lady Michelle Obama perfect? Of course. Would she make a great President? Obviously, yes. But it's time for all of us to accept that it's never, ever going to happen.

President Obama (the current one) went on Sirius XM’s Sway in the Morning this morning, as part of his campaign to keep the gropey Oompa Loompa out of The White House, and he was asked for the trillionth time if there was a chance FLOTUS might run for President. And for the trillionth time, he said: nope.

Obama said she has zero interest in taking on the position, and basically implied she's above it (she is). “[Michelle] will never run for office," he said. "She is as talented and brilliant a person as there is and I could not be prouder of her, but Michelle does not have the patience or the inclination to actually be a candidate herself. That’s one thing y’all can take to the bank. But she’s gonna be, just as I am, we’re going to continue to be very active in terms of issues we care about.”

But we can only accept this if Michelle Obama says so herself! Sorry, but she has. Many times. There is even a CNN timeline of the times Michelle Obama or her reps have confirmed that she’s not running, ever. At South by Southwest in March 2016, she put it most succinctly: “I will not run for president. No, nope, not going to do it.”

It's a tough pill to swallow, the thought of a President who isn't an Obama. I guess we'll just have to hang tight for a few years until Malia is old enough to run.
