The 55-year-old sat down with 60 Minutes' Steve Kroft to reflect on the past eight years, and the "unusual" transition we have ahead of us.

The darling Democrat discussed Donald Trump's "improvisational campaign," saying:

"It's unusual. I'll agree with that. And I suspect the President-Elect will agree with that. Look, he's an unconventional candidate. I don't think there's anybody who's run a campaign like his successfully in modern history, not that I can think of."

The Illinois native also touched on the racist Republican's lack of relevant experience, adding:

Donald Trump's Inauguration Will Have LESS Attendees Than Barack Obama's!

Sorry Donald Trump! Barack Obama comes out on top!

On January 20, the controversial President-elect will have his inauguration where he will begin his four-year term. But how many people are expected to show up to the ceremony??

It depends who you ask!

According to the inauguration planners, they are expecting around 900,000 people at the National Mall. On the other hand, The D.C. Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is planning for 800K to 900K, while The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Activities (JCCIC) expects 700K to 750K.

The biggest estimate comes from Destination D.C. who is anticipating one million people, including protestors.

Regardless of which number is most accurate, Trump's swearing-in ceremony will most likely attract less people than Barack Obama's. In 2009, Barry's event gathered 1.8 million, while his 2013 inauguration drew around one million.

However, these figures are simply estimates, and you should be wary of anything you read. According to Arizona State University professor Steve Doig:

"Take any estimate with a grain of salt… What you need to do is look carefully at how the estimate was done and how transparent the group who did it is about their methods."

Either way, Obama is still the man of the people!

The First Children

We're not crying, YOU ARE!

It seems like just yesterday Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Bush welcomed Malia and Sasha Obama into the White House with open arms as their dad took the Oval Office — a loving demonstration of support and sisterhood that only they can relate to.

Eight years later, we've watched President Barack Obama's daughters turn into wonderful young ladies, and George W. Bush's children are reaching out to cheer them on as they embark on this unique transition into "normal" life.

We can't imagine it's easy growing up at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.!

During a time when we need way more compassion, it's wonderful to see some kindness and unity (even across party lines)!

The Bush sisters said:

"Take all that you have seen, the people you have met, the lessons you have learned, and let that help guide you in making positive change. We have no doubt you will."

You're definitely going to watch what advice the Today Show correspondent and the Global Health Corps founder had to offer (below)!
