Well…At least he won’t have any problem finding a home, and he possibly will be the first former President since George Washington to actually live in the area.
After years of speculation, President Obama confirmed on Thursday that he and his wife, Michelle, intend to remain in Washington for “a couple of years” after his term ends.
It has been decades since a president stayed in the capital after leaving office. But Mr. Obama said during a visit here that “we’re going to have to stay” in Washington until his younger daughter, Sasha, finishes school.
“Transferring someone in the middle of high school — tough,” the president said in response to a question from a woman at a restaurant here.
Sasha is on track to graduate from the exclusive Sidwell Friends School in the spring of 2019. Mr. Obama said he was unsure where the family would move after that.
