Obama Says ‘There Are Days When I Say One Term Is Enough’

Even as he begins his re-election campaign, President Barack Obama may be tacitly acknowledging the chance of defeat.

“I’m sure there are days where I say that one term is enough,” Obama said in an interview with NBC News that aired Tuesday morning on Today.

He also said that if the first lady “didn’t think that what we’re doing is worthwhile in moving the country forward, I think she’d be the first one to say do something else less stressful.”

The President said his daughters have responded well to being members of the first family. “The girls seem to be thriving,’’ he said. “They continue to surprise me with how poised, well-mannered (and) kind they are turning out, even in the hothouse environment of the White House.’’

However, “Michelle and the kids are wonderful in that if I said, `You know, guys, I want to do something different,’ they’d be fine,” Obama said. “They’re not invested in Daddy being president or my husband being president.”
