"They wouldn't let me in the car with her," Michelle Obama said about Malia's Secret Service instruction in an interview with Rachel Ray, according to CNN. Not letting the First Lady teach her daughter how to handle a car might have been for the best. Obama said that she has largely forgotten some of what to do behind the wheel during her time in the White House. Now licensed, Malia sometimes drives by herself, but obviously with a security detail nearby.
The tricky balance of driving and national security is not an issue only for the Obamas. Vice President Joe Biden has complained about the Secret Service not letting him get behind the wheel of his 1967 Corvette.
