President Obama told a Bay Area fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee last week that he intends to stay “very active in the public life of this country” after leaving office.
Speaking at the home of former state controller Steve Westly in Atherton, Calif., Obama was greeted early in the brunch reception by a shout of “four more years.”
“Oh, no, definitely not. Not only is there a constitutional provision, but more importantly, Michelle would kill me,” Obama quipped.
“But there’s so much more to do, so many more laws we’d like to pass and administrative actions that need to be taken. But, on the other hand, there was great satisfaction because we could look back on where we were when we came into office and take enormous pride in the way in which not simply this administration, but the country rose up from extraordinarily difficult times.”
