Transcript for Four More Years; Obama Family Calls White House Home Again
And the obama family has four more years to call the white house home for sasha and malia. That means spending most of their teenaged years here. Sharyn alfonsi who was covering wisconsin for us on election night, reports to us from milwaukee with the years ahead in the teenage years. Those can be tough years. Reporter: I know, you have to feel for them. Throughout the campaign, we kept seeing the romney kids and the grandkids on the stage. We only got glimpses of sasha and malia. Last night, they walk on the stage. And we all thought, they've gotten really big. They're 11 and 14 years old right now. They have four more years in the white house. Four more years as teenagers. Overnight, once again, front and center. Sasha and malia. Before our very eyes, you're growing up to become two strong, smart, beautiful young women, just like your mom. Reporter: Sasha and malia obama, older, more poised and taller than four years ago. Hi, daddy. Hey, sweetie. Reporter: Presidential daughters, rewarded for a grueling campaign, w a new dog. You have earned the new puppy that's coming with us to the white house. Reporter:7-year-old sasha and 10-year-old malia obama, from chicago, were uprooted. New home, new friends and a new school. I did worry what this life would be like for them. You know, could I keep them normal? Could we instill in them the values that we learned growing up? Humility and decency and treating people with respect. Reporter: Because of that, what we've seen has been carefully controlled by their parents. Hoping to give them a regular childhood. They're very careful what they say about the girls and do their best to shelter and protect them. Reporter: We see them in glimpses. Dad coaching sasha's basketball team. Reading to children. You do not want to play. Reporter: Their first day of school. I know malia was really embarrassed when I walked her to classroom. But I went anyway because she is daddy's girl and will remain daddy's girl until she's about 30. Reporter: That was malia then She's 14. A teenager, nearly as tall as her mother. 11-year-old sasha, sprouting up, too. And that sums up the inauguration, on stage overnight. I look at them in the same way and think, wow. You guys have grown up. And you're so poised. And you're so sweet. So, there's that motherly side of me. But it's still always a balance between protecting them. Reporter: A balance that will only grow tougher as they grow. They have a regular life. They have friends and sleepovers. To them, it's home. Reporter: By the end of this term, sasha will be 15, malia 18. They will have lived over half their lives in washington. They're smart and funny. But most of all, they're kind. Reporter: Now, there will be more milestones in that big, white house. Like homecoming and learning to drive. I told her she will be able to learn to drive. Reporter: There will be proms and graduations and even first dates. I have men with guns that surround them often. Reporter: And the president was asked about that, about dating in an interview recently in new hampshire. And he said, there has been, quote, no official interest from the girls. At least that is the party line.
