President Obama confirmed Thursday that he and his family won’t be leaving Washington immediately after his term ends in January.

During a stop at a restaurant in Milwaukee to meet with Obamacare enrollees, Mr. Obama was asked by a woman where he plans to live after he departs the White House.

“We haven’t figured that out yet,” the president said. “We’re going to have to stay [in Washington] a couple of years so Sasha can finish” school.

He added, “Transferring someone in the middle of high school — tough.”

Daughter Sasha attends the exclusive Sidwell Friends school in Washington. While the Obamas’ post-presidency plans have been generally known, it’s not something he normally discusses publicly.

The president said Hawaii, where he was born, “is home for me,” but suggested that his real home is Chicago.

“I spent almost 30 years in Chicago,” he said, noting it was also the hometown of first lady Michelle Obama.
