President Barack Obama says he wouldnâ€™t run for a third term even if he could. He says the presidency takes a toll on family life, and the office.Obama tells CBSâ€™ â€œSunday Morningâ€ that heâ€™s not yearning for a third term is because one, his wife Michelle wouldnâ€™t let him and the office needs new ideas..He said
Â â€œNo. I wouldnâ€™t,â€ Obama said. â€œNumber one, Michelle wouldnâ€™t let me.This is a process in which the office should be continually renewed by new energy and new ideas and new insights,â€ Obama said. â€œAnd although I think I am as good of a president as I have ever been right now, I also think that there comes a point where you donâ€™t have fresh legs.â€
â€œAnd yet, there has not been a day that I have not walked into the Oval Office and understood that at no point in my life will I ever have the chance to do as much good and make as much of a difference in the lives of people as I do right now,â€ Obama said.
Obama says the thing that makes him happiest about his presidency ending next January is a chance to get out of what he calls the â€œthe bubble.â€ Thatâ€™s what he calls the tight security controls over his travels outside the White House. He says the bubble is â€œthe hardest thing about the presidency.â€
