What's Happening In Your World
In an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters, First Lady Michelle Obama set the record straight, making it clear that she doesn’t have any plans to run for   office. “I have learned from my husband, watching him, that it does require a great deal of patience to really feel the full impact of the work that you do on the ground,” FLOTUS said. “It doesn’t happen right away.” When Walters asked Mrs. Obama what she’d change about herself, Obama said she’d like more patience. “I’d be more patient. I think I’ve gotten more patient over the years,” Obama said. “I’m constantly working on just being patient with myself and not letting my expectations get ahead of what’s happening now.” Even though the first lady has never expressed a personal interest in one day running for office, others have suggested she should run. Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) said in an interview with  Newsweek  that Michelle Obama running for office would be a “breath of fresh air in D.C.” “She’s honest and straightforward, which is not what you see in Washington much. She is exactly what we need around here,” Clyburn said. Much of this speculation has come as a result of a recent poll which found that, in a hypothetical matchup, Michelle Obama leads Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) by double digits. So by saying she has no plans for running, FLOTUS surely let the air out of some people who were eyeing her to be the candidate in that Senate run.
