First lady Michelle Obama is due to leave the White House when her husband’s term ends in January 2017, and she said she has no intentions of going back.
Speaking at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday, the first lady made it clear that she has no designs on the presidency.
“I will not run for president. No, nope, not going to do it,” Obama said.
She indicated a desire to be free from partisan controversy while still serving the public, saying she wanted to “impact as many people as possible in an unbiased way.”

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Are Angry About Oreos:
Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have all spoken out against Mondelez International’s (MDLZ) plan to cut 600 jobs at a Chicago Oreo cookie factory, and move many of those positions to Mexico.
Nabisco, a subsidiary of Mondelez, had received $90 million in tax benefits from Chicago and Illinois in 1993 to keep making Oreos in the company’s Southwest Side facility. Nabisco had used the money to upgrade its facility to churn out more Oreos, fat free Fig Newtons and Ritz crackers.
But Mondelez announced in July 2015 that those facilities have become too inefficient, and this time, the upgrades would be happening elsewhere. As part of a $130 million investment, Mondelez chose its facility in Salinas, Mexico, for new state-of-the-art manufacturing “Lines of the Future.”
