President Barack Obama waves as he walks on the White House lawn Friday, June 13, 2014.

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.”
