Michelle Obama: ‘Hope doesn’t get actualized in three and a half years’

BY:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But, you know, the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times. I need to do a better job of that in my second term.

CHARLIE ROSE: Better job of explaining.

OBAMA: Explaining, but also inspiring.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Because hope is still there, you know? I mean, hope doesn’t get actualized in three and a half years. If that were the case, we’d be out of luck as a country. So people still need to grasp onto something important. And they need a leader and a message and, you know, a set of possibilities for their lives.
