The Obama girls are growing up before the nation's eyes!
United States President Barack Obama, 51, called in to Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show on election day, Nov. 6, to talk fatherhood, marriage and politics. When asked if his daughters Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, will be allowed to date if he gets reelected, the Hawaiian-born politician responded, "I think that any young man who has got the guts to get through Secret Service deserves a hearing!"
All kidding aside, the commander-in-chief assured Seacrest that he and his wife are doing everything possible to give their girls a normal upbringing. "Michelle is very good about making sure that we're creating a space for them where they can have sleepovers. They can go to the mall. They can go to the movies," Barack said. "They're going to homecomings at their school."
Seacrest, 37, also asked the former Illinois senator if he's picked out an inauguration song to dance to if he wins the election. "Now that's a tough choice, and I think I'll have to consult with my wife. Last time out, Beyonce sang 'At Last,' Etta James' classic, and that was a pretty good choice. Whatever it is its got to be a slow song so that I can put my moves on Michelle," the President said. "Something a little romantic, you know? I haven't seen her a lot lately. I've been on the road too much."
Whatever the outcome of Tuesday's election is, Barack hopes to see everyone at the polls. "Regardless of who you're voting for our democracy works when the American people get involved. The American people are decent, hard working, and they've got great instincts," he said. "The more people participate the better the outcome!"
