As the possibility that Barack Obama will be in office for another four years grows near, there's a big question about his future that needs to be answered: Will his daughters Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14, be allowed to date during the next term?
That's the question Ryan Seacrest posed to the commander in chief Tuesday morning on the American Idol host's morning radio show. "I think that any young man who has the guts to get through Secret Service deserves a hearing," President Obama joked, explaining that he and Michelle try to make their daughter's lives as normal as possible. "Michelle is very good about making sure that we're creating a space for them where they can have sleepovers. They can go to the mall. They can go to the movies. They're going to homecomings at their school."
All kidding aside, Obama was upfront about Tuesday's election, asking Americans to get out there and vote. "Regardless of who you're voting for, our democracy works when the American people get involved," he said. "The American people are decent, hardworking, and they've got great instincts. The more people participate the better the outcome!"
So, how which song will he choose should he find himself preparing for another inauguration? "Now that's a tough choice, and I think I'll have to consult with my wife," he said. "Last time out Beyoncé sang 'At Last', Etta James' classic, and that was a pretty good choice. Whatever it is, it's got to be a slow song so that I can put my moves on Michelle. Something a little romantic, you know? I haven't seen her a lot lately. I've been on the road too much."
Which song do you think the president should use to "put the moves" on the first lady?
