Malia Obama, 14, has four more years left in the White House before she jets off to the college or university of her choice.

But in the meantime her parents, President Obama and First Lady Michelle, have one major hurdle to cross: boys! The First Couple sat down with People to talk about the possibility of Malia dating in the coming future.

The President was asked about his jokes on having the Secret Service keep boys away from Malia and if she wanted to put an end to those rules. “She actually doesn’t pay any attention to what I say,” he said, laughing.

He went on to share he doesn’t worry too much because he and Michelle have set a strong foundation for their girls. “The great thing about the girls is they’ve got a wonderful role model in their mom. They’ve seen how Michelle and I interact — not only the love but also respect that I show to their mom. So I think they have pretty high expectations about how relationships should be, and that gives me some confidence about the future…”

Amen, President Obama. Read the rest of his fairly moving comments about the girls and what Michelle Obama had to add over on Essence.

Are we the only ones who can’t wait to see if Malia will be dating  – and if so, who – over the next four years?

    That’s exactly what my daddy said, and with today’s men, I’m still waiting lol. . .

  • How does People magazine know if she even likes boys? She might like girls. Just sayin, not being funny.

    • I think she does. Remember a while back she had her first kiss. Doesn’t make her 100% straight but still

  • Tea2theE

    Umm anyone notice how tall she is, sheesh. Mrs. Obama is a giant and she stands just as tall

  • sabrina

    She could go to any university that she wants?! That’s awesome.

  • Nikki

    I’d love to see her date but for the sake of people and the media scrutinizing her and her boyfriend, I’d do it quietly or wait until they are out of the White House.

  • Guest

    She’ll be dating a white guy of course!

    • Nikki

      And if he’s white, Asian, Hispanic, etc. what’s the big deal? As long as he treats her right and her parents approve, it shouldn’t matter.

      I was thinking the same thing but then again those black elites in her parents circle may have her a young African American high society suitor to compliment her looks and heritage. Like her oh so perfect ivy league parents. Its like where did they find these black people (Obamas) they are rich, gorgeous, prestigious with perfect offspring. Im sure the controversy of Jungle fever will not taint their royal Nubian legacy.

        Yes some very wealthy ivy league educated African Americans think they are Persians and its beneath them to mix with other races anymore than what was done before them. They feel like they are the only ones to carry on the Greatness of the Black race so mixing is not an options but really alot of them have access to other wealthy prestigious African American unlike us regular coons who cannot find a good mate and are desperate to sleep and marry whites.

        • Song

          No honey remind those white people who declare he is just a N on all the blogs that are not black. Yahoo, they are just disgusting racist pigs.
