(Newser) – The Obamas will continue to reside in Washington after the president's second term ends—at least until 14-year-old Sasha finishes high school.

During a visit to Milwaukee on Thursday, Obama told a woman at a restaurant the family would stay for "a couple of years" until Sasha graduates. "Transferring someone in the middle of high school—tough," he said. Theories about where the Obamas might end up have included Chicago (their old hometown), California (where the president likes to golf), Hawaii (the state of his birth), and New York (to teach at Columbia, his alma mater).
