President Obama thinks he ‘could win’ a third term in the White House if term limits didn’t bar him from running in 2016.
“I actually think I’m pretty good president,” he said today in a speech before the African Union in Ethiopia. “I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t.”
Even though he’s confident in his re-election abilities, Obama said he’s more interested in life after the presidency.
“I’ll be honest with you, I’m looking forward to life after being president. I won’t have such a big security detail all the time,” he said. “It means I can go take a walk, I can spend time with my family, I can find other ways to serve, I can visit Africa more often “
The president’s comments came as he explained he does “not understand” why some leaders are insistent they remain in power when their term limit ends.
