Michelle Obama threw cold water on all those Democrats hoping that the former first lady will sweep in to save them from their rather dismal collection of likely 2020 presidential candidates.

Mrs. Obama made the announcement on NBC's "Today" show Thursday, International Day of the Girl.

That next generation includes Obama's two daughters, Malia Obama, 20, and Sasha Obama, 17.

She explained her emphatic answer by suggesting that she knows her "voice" is more effective in a different venue than political office. "When you educate a girl, you educate a family, a community, a country", she said. "If we don't start setting the tone now, they're going to walk into a world where they're still dealing with those issues in the workplace and at home and in schools and I don't want that for your girls". I want to serve, I want to do work, I want to be out there, but there's so many ways to make an impact. "It's as simple as that".

Prior to shutting down all hopes of Michelle 2020, Obama discussed the #MeToo movement, which she described as highlighting how risky the world is for women and girls.

In regard to any backlash that has surfaced against the movement from men wondering "What about us?" Change is not a direct smooth path.
