TOM JOYNER: 2014 is going to be very important.
MRS. OBAMA: It’s very, very important, Tom. So it is just as important as 2012. So we’re going to —
TOM JOYNER: And then 2016, we might have to vote for Michelle Obama for President.
SYBIL WILKES: Will we have another Obama?
MRS. OBAMA: Well, you know that’s just not going to happen. (Laughter.) Love you. Love you so much.
TOM JOYNER: You sit on it, just sit on it. (Laughter.)
SYBIL WILKES: Just let it marinate.
TOM JOYNER: No rush here. No rush.
MRS. OBAMA: I’m sitting hearing this. (Laughter.) Unlike many, I know what the job entails, and I’ve always said I am the sane Obama. (Laughter.)
But I am so proud of you all and just happy to call you all our friends because you have truly been friends through the good times and the hard times and the bad times. And I can’t put into words what your support and your love and your prayers and your efforts have meant, not just in this election, but on every initiative that I have had, you all have given me an avenue to share. And I can’t thank you enough.
SYBIL WILKES: Well, we’re happy and proud to call you our First Lady.
TOM JOYNER: That’s right. That’s right.
MRS. OBAMA: Well, you’re stuck with me for four more years.
TOM JOYNER: Yes, yes, yes.
SYBIL WILKES: It’s a good partnership here. We’re very proud and pleased to be a part of it. Are you ready for the holiday?
MRS. OBAMA: We’re ready. We are entertaining like crazy. We got folks coming in and out of the house. (Laughter.) We got a lot of people coming over. It’s a good time, good spirit. Everybody is feeling real positive. But I hope that our President gets a break because he certainly needs one. So hopefully we’ll be able to get away and spend some family time so that we can come back rejuvenated, renewed, ready for an inauguration, and then four more years of a lot of good work getting done.
TOM JOYNER: Well, give the Big Chief a fist pound for me.
MRS. OBAMA: Absolutely. And we will be talking. We got a lot to do. Now that we got four years, we got events.
SYBIL WILKES: Well, we’re here for you.
MRS. OBAMA: I know we’re going to be doing stuff with you, Tom and Sybil. All right, so just don’t get sick of me, okay?
SYBIL WILKES: Never, never. (Laughter.)
MRS. OBAMA: All right. Well, happy holidays. See you guys.
…Happy holidays to all your listeners. Everybody be safe out there.
