Stop Trying To Make Michelle Obama Run For President

"When they go low, we go high," Michelle Obama said.

Michelle Obama was high on Democratic voters' list of people they wanted to run for president in 2020.

She's as qualified as some other candidates who have run in the past. But would she run?

FLOTUS cleared up any speculation during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

"Would you ever run for office? I have to ask you," Oprah Winfrey asked.

"No," Obama said.

"No kind of office?" Winfrey asked.

"No. That's one thing I don't do. I don't make stuff up. I'm not coy. ... I'm pretty direct. If I were interested in it, I'd say it. I don't believe in playing games," Obama explained.
