A longtime friend of the Obama family offered some insight into why Michelle Obama won’t run for president, even if she would be good at the job.
Tracey Meares, a professor at Yale Law School who served on the Presidential Task Force for 21st Century Policing, sat down for an interview with the Martha’s Vineyard Times during a vacation that coincided with the former first family’s stay on the Massachusetts island.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Should she run? I don’t know,” Meares said with a smile on her face, adding, “She won’t. I can’t imagine she would.”

Obama recently talked about the possibility of running for president during an interview with The National magazine. The following exchange was reported:

But sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office will never be one of them. It’s just not for me.
