Obama on Third Term: 'If I Ran Again, I Could Win'

President Barack Obama rebuked African leaders who refused to give up power Tuesday, joking that he thought he was "pretty good" at his job and could win a third term if he were allowed to run.
In a speech to the African Union, he said those who did not step aside at the end of their time in office risked "instability and strife."
"I love my job," he told the assembled leaders. "But under our Constitution, I cannot run again. I actually think I'm a pretty good president — I think if I ran, I could win — but I can't!"
He told them that, in the United States, "the law is the law — no one person is above the law, not even the president," adding that he didn't understand why some of them didn't step aside "especially when they've got a lot of money."
