Youngest Obama has say on where family will live
WASHINGTON — Sasha Obama could be the deciding factor in whether her father stays in Washington when he leaves office.
President Obama told ABC News in a taped interview that his now-12-year-old daughter “will have a big vote in where we are.”
When Obama leaves office in January 2017 after two terms, eldest daughter Malia could be off in college and Sasha will be a sophomore in high school. Both girls attend the exclusive Sidwell Friends School in northwest Washington.
Obama said he and his wife, Michelle, have to make sure Sasha is doing well until she goes off to college.
He suggested that no decisions have been made. But he did hint that tearing Sasha away from her friends might be asking too much, saying that his wife and daughters have made “a lot of sacrifices on behalf of my cockamamie ideas, the running for office and things.”
