Transcript of interview of President Obama by Michael Baisden

Q Great to have you back on the show. President Barack Obama, it’s show time, sir. Twenty-four hours before Election Day, how are you doing?


Q Yes, sir?

THE PRESIDENT: How are you, sir?

Q I’m doing wonderful. It’s time to get out the vote.

THE PRESIDENT: It is time to get out the vote. And I really appreciate you taking me on today, and I want to make sure that all your listeners understand the importance of this election. My name may not be on the ballot, but the future of the country, in terms of us being able to move forward, create jobs, grow the economy, make sure young people get a good education, all that is going to be dependent on me having some folks in Congress who are ready and willing to cooperate. And that's going to be determined largely by the turnout in this election.
