On Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, First Lady Michelle Obama was asked if she would be “bummed” if her husband lost the election.

“Is there any part of you that wouldn’t be so bummed, if you didn’t win this time around?” Kimmel asked. “Absolutely not...no, no no.”

“This is about our kids and our future,” the First Lady said, noting that the president’s job was much harder. “Even when Barack talked about entering the politics, period, I was very hesitant for the very same reasons, your life isn’t your own, how do you raise your kids.”

Obama added that she agreed with her husband’s decision to run for president.

“I felt that to deny him that right would be selfish,” she said. “So we’re in it.”
