Obama: ‘I think if I ran again I could win’
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama said Tuesday that he could win a third term in office if he ran again, but is barred by the Constitution.
“I think if I ran again I could win. But I can’t!” Obama said.
Obama’s quip came during a speech to the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the first address to the group by a U.S. president. Throughout his comments he promoted democratic rule.
The loudest applause line came when Obama said he didn’t understand the motivation behind remaining in power through force — even when leaders have “got a lot of money.”
