Children, College, and Crying: Former President Barack Obama Sits Down with David Letterman to Discuss Family and Life After Presidency; Says Michelle Would Leave Him If He Ran Agairn @balleralert Room Former President Barack Obama Sits Down with David Letterman to Discuss Family and Life After Presidency; Says Michelle Would Leave Him If He Ran Again -blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Former late-night TV host DavidLetterman held his first interview for his new Netflix show, ‘My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman’, and the conversation was nothing short of interesting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ For his first hour-long interview, Letterman sat down with former president BarackObama. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ In front of a studio audience at the City University of New York, the two discussed subjects such as the Obama family, his legacy and how he wants it to be remembered, and even some of his views on current issues such as voting rights. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ When it comes to his legacy as president, Obama said, "The economy was collapsing faster than it did during the great depression. The month I took office we lost 800,000 jobs – just in that month. And one of the things I'm proudest about is the fact that, within a year, we had the economy growing again and within about a year and a half we were actually adding jobs again instead of losing them." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ As one of the most beloved presidential families, we all are dying to know what the transition has been like from the White House to “regular life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ When his oldest daughter Malia left for college, Obama said, "It was like open heart surgery,...One of the best descriptions I've ever heard [about having] children was 'It's like having your heart outside your body.' And they're not that smart and they're wandering around and crossing streets, and getting on airplanes …" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I was basically useless. Everyone had seen me crying and misting up for the past three weeks," ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite, the hard times, the former prez is enjoying the extra time. He says he has no intention to run for a third term, not because it’s illegal, but because of his wife Michelle Obama. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ “No, no, no, you guys are misunderstanding me – what I'm saying is, I’m prevented from running again by the Constitution but even if it were not for that amendment, Michelle would leave me."

Christmas, Cookies, and Family: A couple of months ago, when I told General Krulak, the former Commandant of the MarineCorps, now the chair of the NavalAcademy Board of Visitors, that we were having General JamesMattis speak this evening, he said, “Let me tell you a Jim Mattis story.” Gen. Krulak said, when he was Commandant of the Marine Corps, every year, starting about a week before Christmas, he and his wife would bake hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of Christmas cookies. They would package them in small bundles. Then on Christmas day, he would load his vehicle. At about 4 a.m., Gen. Krulak would drive himself to every Marine guard post in the Washington-Annapolis-Baltimore area and deliver a small package of Christmas cookies to whatever Marines were pulling guard duty that day. He said that one year, he had gone down to Quantico as one of his stops to deliver Christmas cookies to the Marines on guard duty. He went to the command center and gave a package to the lance corporal who was on duty. He asked, “Who’s the officer of the day?” The lance corporal said, “Sir, it’s Brigadier General Mattis.” And General Krulak said, “No, no, no. I know who Gen. Mattis is. I mean, who’s the officer of the day today, Christmas day?” The lance corporal, feeling a little anxious, said, “Sir, it is Brigadier General Mattis.” General Krulak said that, about that time, he spotted in the back room a cot, or a daybed. He said, “No, Lance Corporal. Who slept in that bed last night?” The lance corporal said, “Sir, it was Brigadier General Mattis.” About that time, General Krulak said that General Mattis came in, in a duty uniform with a sword, and General Krulak said, “Jim, what are you doing here on Christmas day? Why do you have duty?” General Mattis told him that the young officer who was scheduled to have duty on Christmas day had a family, and General Mattis decided it was better for the young officer to spend Christmas Day with his family, and so he chose to have duty on Christmas Day. General Krulak said, “That’s the kind of officer that Jim Mattis is.” (The story above was told by Dr. Albert C. Pierce, the Director of the Center for the Study of Pro.
