Michelle would leave me: Obama on taking a position in Biden's cabinet

In his first sit-down interview since the election, former president Barack Obama made clear he would not take a position in Joe Biden’s cabinet because doing so could lead his wife to leave him. “He doesn’t need my advice, and I will help him in any ways that I can. Now, I’m not planning to suddenly work on the White House staff or something,” Obama said on CBS. When CBS This Morning co-host asked whether that meant “no cabinet position for you,” Obama didn’t hesitate. “There are probably some things I would not be doing, ‘cause Michelle would leave me,” Obama said with a laugh. “She’d be like, ‘What? You’re doin’ what?’”
