President Obama’s answer to an US Weekly reader who wanted “advice for someone who wants to be president.” (Good question, Tyler Beltz, 16, of Detroit!) The president otherwise stuck mostly to campaign talking points in his Q&A in the latest issue of the celebrity glossy. (But seriously, Tyler, “I’m only where I am today because I had great teachers and access to great education” etc. etc. etc. — you know the drill.)
