Science needs to get a hold of Barbara Walters and examine the woman. Somehow she keeps ticking away, landing amazing exclusive interviews and remaining important in the world of television even at 82 years old and more than 50 years on the job.
Walters has landed an exclusive interview with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. During the interview, which will be broadcast tonight on Nightline, Walters grilled the married couple on what life is like in the White House, including how they "keep the fire going in their marriage." I know that is the question I would ask them if I got the chance (sarcasm alert).
"We've been married now 20 years, and like every marriage, I think you have your ups and your downs, but if you work through the tough times, the respect and love that you feel deepens," a surprised Barack answered. Michelle added that laughter was a key element as well, which led Barbara to conclude that Michelle is the funnier of the Obamas.
Walters also asks about marijuana legalization, the fiscal cliff, Robin Roberts and the state of the Obama marriage during the interview, which was taped earlier this month.
It was originally scheduled to air two weeks ago but was delayed following the events in Newtown, Conn.
