It's hard enough trying to date as an adolescent these days, but the Obama girls have the added pressure that comes with being a part of the most high-profile family in the world. Nancy O'Dell caught up with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle to find out what 14-year-old Malia's potential suitors have in store for them.
"She may not be able to date until she's 30," the President quipped when asked what it will be like for his daughter dating while in the White House.
When Nancy narrowed down the question -- "Let's say she goes to the prom, does secret service go with her?" -- it was Mrs. Obama's turn to play politician, joking, "That's classified information ... We can't divulge those secrets."
The President and First Lady did divulge that Malia and Sasha, 11, have "lived as normal a life as one could live in this situation."
"We are religious about having dinner at 6:30 every night as long as we're in town," the President said. "During a school year it's very rare when I'm not seeing them every night."
