President Barack Obama granted Ann Curry an interview, which aired Tuesday morning on “Today.” In addition to talking about the economy and Rep. Anthony Weiner (“If I were him, I’d resign,” Obama said), the president nodded at the 2012 election machine powering up.

Obama’s Chicago-based re-election team has been hard at work for months, so there’s no question that he is actively seeking a second term, but, he told Curry, “there are days when I say, ‘one term is enough.’”

“What keeps me going is a belief that the work that we started in 2009 is not yet complete.”

Watch the interview below, which originally aired June 14, 2011, on NBC’s “Today.”
