"Run for president," a man in the crowd pipes up.

"Be quiet back there," the First Lady responded, to laughs from the crowd.

"Be quiet back there" outgoing first lady Michelle Obama responds to the latest calls for her to run for President of the United States.

Though Obama's post-White House plans are unclear, she has repeatedly said she has no desire to be president.

When asked in March at her South by Southwest keynote address whether she'd consider running for president, she responded, "No, nope, not going to do it."

Then added: "You don't have to be president of the United States to do wonderful, marvellous things."
