Sensible daughters have Obama eye on them

Washington, Dec. 21 (Reuters): President Barack Obama says he is not worried about his daughters starting to date. After all, he has got some help keeping an eye on them.

Malia, age 15, and Sasha, age 12, are “very sensible”, Obama told comedian and talk show host Steve Harvey in a television interview that aired yesterday. “And the second thing is, I’ve got men with guns following them around all the time,” Obama quipped, referring to the Secret Service detail that is a constant presence around his family.

“This is the main reason I ran for re-election,” he joked in the light-hearted interview taped at the White House. “You know I’m going to have them covered for most of high school.” Obama and his family left for a two-week holiday in Hawaii yesterday.

“They’re doing great, but they grow up so fast,” Obama said in the interview. Obama said he worries about “getting in the way of the girls just having a normal life”.
