Rumors have been swirling that Michelle Obama might decide to run as Joe Biden’s Vice President against Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
And now, this…
According to a document finally released to the public by the Federal Election Committee, a Democrat political group has just filed paperwork demanding that Michelle Obama be “drafted” by the Democrat Party to replace Joe Biden as the nominee against Trump.
Would Michelle Obama Run?
Late last month, Biden said that he would choose the former First Lady “in a heartbeat,” but did not think she was interested in the position.
In a statement to CBS, Biden reportedly stated:
“I’d take her in a heartbeat… She’s brilliant. She knows the way around. She is a really fine woman. The Obamas are great friends.”
But Biden ultimately threw away the idea, saying that he just didn’t think she would be interested in getting back into politics again.
Democrats Sign Paperwork To Encourage Michelle To Run
But although Michelle Obama may not be “interested” to run as a vice president, it’s possible that she might be tempted to run for president herself. Especially if she’s coaxed by Democrat voters.
That’s why a recent organization called “The Committee to Draft Michelle Obama” said in a statement sent to the media that their goal is to gain grassroots support for Obama to be chosen. They think they can push Michelle Obama into running.
“The aim of this campaign is to build on the substantial grassroots support for a potential Michelle Obama candidacy and help garner media attention…”
The statement continued:
“The Committee to Draft Michelle Obama firmly believes that Ms. Obama will not only benefit the Democratic ticket this November but also help lead this country to be more just and caring.”
Biden/Obama Ticket Coming Soon?
Although it’s extremely unlikely that Michelle Obama will launch a presidential campaign this late in the game, it’s very possible that she might decide to run as Vice President with Joe Biden.
Biden has said that while he is committing to choosing a woman, he can’t guarantee that it will be a woman of color. But he said he’d like it to be.
“I’ll commit to that [it will] be a woman because it is very important that my administration look like the public, look like the nation. And there will be, committed that there will be a woman of color on the Supreme Court, that doesn’t mean there won’t be a vice president, as well.”
Earlier in April, Biden said that he is considering controversial Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer as his pick. People have also speculated that California Sen. Kamala Harris and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams may be in the running.
Considering how few women there are in the Democrat Party, it’s very possible that Michelle Obama might try to run again… because 8 years wasn’t enough time for her husband to completely destroy America. So now she’s trying to do it herself.
