"The truth is, I'm pretty relaxed about it for two reasons," Barack, 55, told WDCG on Friday, Nov. 4. "One is [my wife], Michelle Obama — she's such a great example of how she carries herself, her self-esteem, not depending on boys to validate how you look or not letting yourself be judged by anything other than your character and intelligence. Hopefully, I've been a good example in terms of how I show respect to my wife."

The second reason is an obvious one! "They have Secret Service," he quipped. "There's only so much these guys can do!"
Barack and Michelle — who married in October 1992 — welcomed Malia and Sasha in July 1998 and June 2001, respectively.
