National Review’s Jim Geraghty might have been wondering if his ears deceived him, but they didn’t.
Here’s a short video from a CNN report today discussing Michelle Obama’s plans after leaving the White House, followed by a partial transcript:
CNN reporter: Politics is not for her. She’s never liked it although she’s good at it. Um, she talked about wanting to be a mentor, wanting to travel, finally see the Hoover Dam…
Michelle Obama detailed her Hoover Dam wish in a recent interview:
And she says by 70, she’d like to be traveling — to remote castles in Ireland, on rafting trips and to the Hoover Dam, which she said she hasn’t seen.
“I have flown into an airport, done an event and left, but I want to stay and have a meal, try the local dish and shop in a little shop,” she said.
You’d think somebody who just spent 24 days in Hawaii could find the time and means to visit the Hoover Dam.
@jimgeraghty Life as First Lady can be such a burden.
