“In a job like this, the last thing the president of the United States needs when he walks in the door to come home is someone drilling him and questioning him about the decisions and choices that he’s made,” Mrs. Obama told “Nightline” anchor Cynthia McFadden in an interview at the White House. “There are definitely times when I may feel something, but I’ll hold back because I know he’ll either get to that on his own or it’s just not time.”

[…] “I rarely step foot in the West Wing. In fact people are shocked when they see me there,” she said. “I rarely walk in that office because the truth is he’s got so many wonderful advisers. He’s got a phenomenal cabinet. He’s got people who are in the trenches on these issues every single day and I’m kind of stepping in and out and I’ve got my own set of issues. So I don’t even have the kind of expertise and the time in to be able to provide the kind of advice and guidance that he’s already getting.”
