A co-chair of President-elect Obama's transition team says Michelle Obama as first lady will be focused on her two daughters and has no interest in having a seat at her husband's decision-making table.
Valerie Jarrett says Michelle Obama first will get her daughters - 10-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha - settling into their new life at the White House. Jarrett says Michelle Obama wants to get to work helping women juggle a career and motherhood.
She's also interested in helping military spouses and promoting volunteerism.
But Jarrett says having a seat at the table and being "a co-president" is not something Michelle Obama is interested in.
Jarrett spoke on NBC's "Meet the Press."
