Today we remember the first and the last time it happened: A sitting president and first lady appeared together on The Oprah Show.
  • Look back at Oprah's interview with President Barack Obama and the first lady during his campaign for re-election


  • President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama took a break from politics as usual to return to the city they call home and sit down for a landmark interview.

    "Air Force One has landed in Chicago!" Oprah says. "I am so honored that in these remaining days of The Oprah Show, they chose to be here."

    "We're thrilled to be here," President Obama says. "It's always nice to find an excuse to come home."

    President and Mrs. Obama and their two daughters, 9-year-old Sasha and 12-year-old Malia, may live in the most famous house in America—the White House—but they still call Chicago home. "[It's the] greatest city in the world," the president says.
