See Why Obamas would Remain in D.C. After Presidency @ 3:10 am On Mar 04, 2016

President Obama cast some light on his post presidency plans Thursday, telling lunch companions in Milwaukee that he plans to remain in Washington so that his youngest daughter can finish high school.

"We're going to have to stay a couple of years so Sasha can finish. Transferring someone in the middle of high school — tough," he said while eating lunch at a Milwaukee restaurant.

Beyond that? "We haven't figured that out yet," he said

Perhaps realizing that he was within earshot of his traveling press corps, he then shooed reporters away. "Thanks guys," he said. "Get out of here."

Obama was in Milwaukee Thursday to congratulate that city on having the most health insurance enrollments under Obamacare of any city under a White House initiative called the Healthy Communities Challenge. He had lunch in Milwaukee Wednesday with people who had written him letters about the Affordable Care Act, considered the signature legislative achievement of his presidency.

Sasha, 15, attends Sidwell Friends School in Washington. His elder daughter, Malia, is going off to college this year.


Michelle Obama and daughters Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, wave to the audience at the Democratic National Convention in Denver on Aug. 25, 2008.


Obama's remark was more definitive than his earlier statements on the matter. In 2013, Obama told ABC's Barbara Walters that he might stay in Washington until Sasha goes off to college. "We gotta make sure that she's doing well," Obama told Walters. "Sasha will have a big say in where we are."

Obama would be the first president not to leave Washington since Woodrow Wilson. Usatoday.com
