President Barack Obama greeted ABC World News anchor Diane Sawyer with a kiss to begin their interview Monday. But an awkward moment soon followed when Sawyer asked the president if the job was ever so difficult that he would consider not running for a second term.

“I’d rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president,” said Obama.
