In his first television interview since the election of Joe Biden as the 46th President, former President Barack Obama sits down with "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King to discuss the first volume of his memoirs, "A Promised Land." He talks about the enormous opposition he experienced as he entered the White House; the impact of his political career on his family; and why he campaigned for his former vice president – and spoke out so vociferously against his successor, President Donald Trump.

It is truely a shame that that some politicians care more about playing sides than doing what it right.

No one mentions the bravery Obama has in him. A black man running for and achieving the highest office in the USA. I remember thinking ' i wonder how long it will take for someone to take a shot at him'. And I'm sure it went through the minds of him, Mrs Obama, probably everyone at some point. Obama is a great human being. Live long and prosper, Mr Preident.

My sister and her family were getting ice cream on vacation in Hawaii when in walked the secret service followed by President Obama. She said he was very jovial, a bit intimidating but still approachable. He answered questions and thanked everyone for being patient with his impromptu run for ice cream with his family.

I Always liked him and thought he always meant to do the right thing and help the people. I did not always agree with him but could see his reasoning. I will always like and RESPECT this great man!!!! Unlike the person and 4 years of embarrassing turmoil that unfortunately followed.

I've missed the well spoken, soft, punctual, and intellectual verbiage of the president. If you liked him or not you have to admit he spoke well and made his message clear

Wish we could get him back for another 8 years. My mom always told me “do the right thing even when no one is looking”. I can’t say I have lived by that code as well as I could have but I have tried my best. I feel like Obama is the type of person who lives by that.

If Obama had stood there saying "I'm in the lead with half the votes still to be counted, let's stop now and say I won" Republicans would explode in anger

I miss having such an articulate, thoughtful and humble President. A man that actually loved his wife and his country. I hope we can recover from this fiasco, but I have serious doubts.
