First Lady Michelle Obama is more than just one-half of the coolest First Couple to ever occupy the White House. Although time and time again the FLOTUS has proved how cool she is whether she's dropping bars about the benefits of going to college alongside Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharaoh, or mom dancing her way into people's hearts with Jimmy Fallon. During her time as First Lady she's done things like create a campaign to end childhood obesity. And though many may have hoped the First Lady would run for president in the future she made it clear today that wasn't going to happen.
She delivered the news on Wednesday at SXSW Music Conference. Joining her on stage was Queen Latifah who asked the FLOTUS if she'd run for president, reportedly making the crowd go wild. After reflecting on what she'll miss most after being First Lady for seven years she said she wouldn't run.
"No, no. Not going to do it," she said according to NBC News. She explained daughters Malia and Sasha were part of the reason why she wouldn't. "The daughters of a president. Just think about it. Come on, young people. Not so easy," said the First Lady adding, "They've handled it with grace and with poise…"
But she said she would continue to do the work she's started in the White House:
She was at SXSW to premiere a song featuring Missy Elliot and Zendaya as a part of the Obamas "Let Girls Learn" initiative meant to affect the 62 million girls worldwide who aren't getting an education.
