Michelle Obama once said: "I will not run for president. No, nope, not going to do it." Her reason? "I've got these two young people at home. Being the daughters of the president. Just think about it. Come on, young people, not so easy. They handled it with grace and poise, but enough is enough."

But at the White House's Veterans' Homelessness Summit on Monday, Michelle's supporters were given a glimmer of hope by way of her response to someone yelling "Run for president!"

Michelle didn't shut it down, only dropping a stern "Be quiet back there!"

THERE IS HOPE.
