The Obama girls have pretty much grown up in front of America’s eyes. From the first day the Obama family stepped into the White House, Sasha and Malia were thrust into the public eye.

In a recent 20/20 interview, President Barack Obama and Michelle discussed just exactly what’s allowed and not allowed for their daughters.  Facebook is one of them. Sasha, who’s only 12, isn’t allowed to take part in the social network craze.

“I still am not a big believer in Facebook for young people … particularly for them, because they’re in the public eye,” the first lady said. “Some of it’s stuff they don’t need to see and be a part of … So we try to protect them from too much of the public voice.”

But when it comes to high-school sophomore, Malia, the Obamas did admit that she is allowed to date, but didn’t divulge any information on a beau in her life.

When the president’s term comes to an end in 2017, the Obamas said Sasha will play a huge role in deciding where they’ll plant their feet next. Although Malia will be a college student, Sasha will still be in high-school, and that’ll play a big role in whether or not she wants to continue school in D.C or head back to Chicago.

“Sasha will have a big vote,” the president admitted, acknowledging that his family has “made a lot of sacrifices on behalf of my cockamamie ideas, the running for office and things.”

    Mrs. Obama’s.. (Shell in my head) makeup is flawless. She is truly a beautiful, straightforward woman. Such an inspiration to those in my generation, who despite the media saying otherwise, SEES a black woman not acting the fool foremost, yet being “strong”, intelligent, AND supportive to her husband and family. Love it!

  • The First Parents have always come across as active parents, so I’m not surprised.

    Michelle has every reason in the world to stand behind her man till death due them part and I love it! They are working hard to wear the President out but Barack Obama will go down as one of America’s greatest leaders because his character is incombustible, unchangeable…success is a part of his DNA and Michelle sees that. Hell. They see it in each other.

    The amount of success you experience depends on the amount of criticism you can take and for that alone the Obamas are #winning.

    Have any presidents run for or served in some type of elected office in the political arena after presidency?

      @Steppa. John Quincy Adams served for 17 years in the House of Representatives after his presidency. President Taft became Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court. It would be wild if President Obama became a Supreme Court Justice!
