“Transferring someone in the middle of high school. Tough.”
Anyone hoping that President Barack Obama will be leaving Washington, DC early next year will be very disappointed to learn what he said about settling down in the area next year after his term as President is over, according to the Washington Post.
Obama told a Milwaukee resident that he will stick around in the Washington area because he doesn't want to take his daughter Sasha out of her high school. Sasha, who is fourteen, is a freshman at Sidwell Friends, a private school that has been the education of choice for many of Washington's elite and their children.
One of the women at a lunch with Obama asked the question about where he will live once he has finished his tenure. “We haven’t figured that out yet,” he said. “We’re going to have to stay a couple of years so Sasha can finish” school.
He added: “Transferring someone in the middle of high school. Tough.”
Obama's comment shouldn't be surprising to anyone who has been paying attention. He even hinted all the way back in 2013 at an interview with Barbara Walters that Sasha "will have a big say" about where the family goes. However, the President all but confirmed it now.
The lunch was with five people who had written letters to him to describe how they were able to benefit from the Affordable Care Act, the health care law that will likely be one of his presidential legacies. His comments were said during a portion of the meeting where the media was able to listen in with microphones.
Obama is also expected to spend time in Chicago after he leaves the White House, where his home with Michelle is. He also says that he plans to build his presidential library there.
Typically, presidents don't like in Washington after they leave the Oval Office. The last President to do so was Woodrow Wilson, who was too ill to leave.

Or maybe he will stay a lot longer if Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton recommend him for the Supreme Court.
