Obama: No more interviews with kids

Don't expect to see more of Barack Obama's young daughters on television any time soon. The Democratic presidential candidate and his wife, Michelle, allowed the cable show "Access Hollywood" to interview their daughters, Malia and Sasha, as Malia celebrated her 10th birthday. Segments of the interview began airing this week.

On Wednesday, Obama said he had second thoughts after seeing how much attention the interview had received.

Obama told ABC's "Good Morning America" that things got carried away a bit.

Obama said, in his words, "I don't think it's healthy and it's something we'll be avoiding in the future."

Before the "Access Hollywood" interview, the Obamas had kept Malia and 7-year-old Sasha out of the media spotlight.
