Presidential hopeful Barack Obama,his wife Michelle Obama and their daughters Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, are covering the August Issue of People Magazine. The Obamas recently vowed to keep their kids from the limelight;it would appear that Michelle and Barack have reneged on their decision to keep their kids from the public’s eye, but perhaps the Obama kids won’t  be doing television interviews in the near future. In the latest People Issue,readers will learn a little bit about the Obama Children:

The rules in the Obama household for Malia and Sasha are clear-cut:

–”No whining, arguing or annoying teasing,” their mother, Michelle Obama, told People Magazine.

–Make the bed. “Doesn’t have to look good, just throw the sheet over it,” said the mother of 10-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha.

–Set your own alarm clock. “They get themselves up, get their own clothes,” said their grandmother Marian Robinson.

–And the allowance from Dad for doing chores is $1 a week. Barack Obama conceded that “I’m out of town for weeks at a time, so Malia will say, ‘Hey you owe me for 10 weeks.”‘

The likely Democratic presidential nominee and his wife are determined that his bid not disrupt the normal, happy childhood of their daughters, who would be two of the youngest residents of the White House in 30 years if Obama wins. Amy Carter was 9 when she moved in the White House in 1977.

Malia and Sasha visited the White House in 2005 and were bored until President Bush’s dog Barney showed up and they romped with him on the South Lawn, Michelle Obama said.
