The Obamas' Law Professor Says *Michelle* Should Have Been President

She was the better student, because she's the best at everything.

We can add Barack and Michelle Obama's old law professor to the growing list of people who think the former first lady would make an amazing POTUS. TMZ caught up with Charles Ogletree, a constitutional law professor who taught the Obamas at Harvard, and he confirmed what we all know: Michelle Obama would be an awesome president.

"You know, his wife should have been president. Absolutely," Charles Ogletree told TMZ when asked about the Obamas as law students. "He was great too, but she was better."

But we shouldn't get our hopes up about seeing Michelle on the ballot—Ogletree doesn't think she'll run.

"She could easily be president, but I don't think she will," he said.

That's a pretty safe prediction, since Michelle and Barack have both said publicly that she doesn't plan to run.
