Click here for a glimpse of our first couple-in-waiting, from “60 Minutes,” which is the envy of all news orgs this weekend for landing the first post-election sit-down with President-elect Obama and Michelle Obama.
They’re young, whip-smart, good-looking and they have a sense of humor. What’s not to love?
CBS won’t let us grab the vid to embed just yet, but they did provide a handy transcript of the clip from the interview conducted today by “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft.
STEVE KROFT: When did it sink in?
MICHELLE OBAMA: I remember, we were watching the returns and, on one of the stations, Barack’s picture came up and it said, “President-Elect Barack Obama.” And I looked at him and said, ‘You are the 44th president of the United States of America. Wow. What a country we live in.”
BARACK OBAMA: How about that?
MICHELLE OBAMA: Yeah.
BARACK OBAMA: Yeah. Yeah. And then she said “Are you going take the girls to school in the morning?” (LAUGHTER)
MICHELLE OBAMA: I did not. (LAUGHTER) I didn’t say that.
