By Mallory Hatten,

As the November 6 election draws near, President Barack Obama is busy promoting his campaign nationwide, going head-to-head with Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Most recently, the POTUS embarked on a 48-hour promotional extravaganza, where he offered some strong advice for future presidential hopefuls.

Us Weekly reports that Obama was dealt a series of questions from online supporters in Virginia on October 19, one being what advice he would offer to someone interested in running for office.

Mr. President replied, Be careful what you post on Facebook! And most of all, take your education seriously.” The 51-year-old Commander-in-Chief, who graduated from Columbia University and Harvard Law School, continued, “I’m only where I am today because I had great teachers and access to great education, and because I worked hard in school.”

According to Entertainment Weekly, Obama appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno earlier this week, where he discussed everything from his wife Michelle to his tiff with business mogul Donald Trump.

The president jokingly said of the Trumpster, “This all dates back to when we were growing up together in Kenya. We had constant run-ins on the soccer field. He wasn’t very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America, I thought it would be over.”
