First Lady Michelle Obama wishes a happy Father's Day to all the dads out there and shares why President Obama is a great dad.
Every solution the President puts forward is inspired by a desire all parents share: the need to build a better world for his kids.
In President Obama's words:
"What I think about is what kind of world am I leaving my two little girls. And what I realized is that life doesn't count for much unless you're willing to do your small part to leave our children, all of our children, a better world. Even if it's difficult. Even in the work seems great. That's our responsibility as fathers and as parents."
