Former first lady Michelle Obama, in an exclusive interview with “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts, said the results of the midterm elections were inspiring and addressed whether Hillary Clinton should run for office again.
“I think that this election gives us hope,” Obama said of the 2018 election. “I’m not talking about what it means for one side or the other. What it speaks to is that our democracy is still ours to own and control.”
“Thank God people saw that voting matters,” she said.
Obama spoke to Roberts in a live interview in Chicago on the day her memoir, “Becoming,” was released. “Becoming” is an in-depth, personal look at Obama’s life before, during and after her family’s eight years in the White House.
The former first lady has consistently said she is not interested and has no plans to run for public office.
When asked what potential candidates she is watching for the 2020 presidential election, including Hillary Clinton, Obama joked that maybe she could tap her teenage daughter Sasha to run.
