Democrats need a Great White Hope. But that hope could come in the form of a radical black Democrat woman.
Not Oprah, but Michelle Obama.
Speculation continues on whether she will run for president in 2020. After all, if former First Lady Hillary Clinton can try, why not another?
The Hill reports:
In an interview on NBC News’ TODAY, Obama responded firmly to a question on if she’ll ever run: “Absolutely not.”
“As a woman, you understand where your voice works best, where you want to operate, what space you want to be in,” the former first lady told hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb.
”I want to serve, I want to do work, I want to be out there, but there’s so many ways to make an impact, politics is just not my thing,” she added.
Obama has said a number of times that she has no plans to enter politics, but doesn’t appear to have convinced supporters who want to see the former first lady step into the political spotlight. The TODAY crowd erupted in cheers when Guthrie asked if she would run.
Obama has said on multiple occasions that she won’t run. Nevertheless, Leftists continue with their wishful thinking.
Let’s face it, Obama represent the Democrats’ best shot. Sadly, this is despite having zero political experience and even less common sense. On the latter point, her husband proved that common sense is no prerequisite for being a viable Leftist candidate.
Why a black woman “shero”?
The Democratic Party is well aware that without black voters overwhelming support, the party has no chance of winning the presidency. The primary way to generate that level of enthusiasm is to have a FULL black candidate at the top of the ticket–bonus points for a glass-ceiling-breaking female as the nominee.
I can see the campaign posters now:
“Full-black and FEMALE!”
Why shouldn’t Democrats repeat what they did with Hillary Clinton, only make this one bigger and blacker.
Oh wait. That’s right; Hillary Clinton lost. Further, Obama needs to get some bona fides on the political front. Perhaps she too can carpetbag in some state and become a junior senator.
Sadly for Democrats. Nothing will get Michelle Obama to run. And here are 4 reasons why:
Michelle Obama believes American history is a narrative of despair, embarrassment and nothing to be proud of.
How can we forget, Obama left the long-lasting impression that she hasn’t been proud of her country until her husband was elected president?
She was an adult when we won the Cold War without firing a shot, but there had not been a moment in her life when she felt proud of her country. But she hasn’t been encouraged or inspired by America’s role in the fall of communism and the Berlin Wall coming down, our unparalleled generosity, to our nation’s entrepreneurial spirit, and ingenuity.
Nor is Obama phased by things that have made liberals proud — the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1991 or Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s elevation to the Supreme Court?
Meanwhile, she and her husband are in the upper 1 percentile of wage earners in this country. The privileged Ivy League couple are millionaires and live in the suburbs. I don’t think dogs were unleashed on Barack Obama. Mrs. Obama did not experience any of the 1950 segregation.
Obama would be wise not run in light of her indictment of America.
Michelle Obama has no political or business experience; her resume is limited, built mostly on riding her husband’s coattails.
I certainly wouldn’t put it past the Democrats to nominate an empty dress for president on the basis of name recognition and identity politics. Obama’s qualifications are the same as crooked Hillary’s – “I’m a woman and the wife of a former president.”
However, if implementing a school lunch program is exemplifies strong leadership, Obama is wholly qualified.
That green stuff on top of the fish is porridge. Eat it. And don’t even think of throwing it away. You’ll eat what we serve you and like it.
While her husband was “fundamentally transforming” America, Michelle was busily becoming an advocate for redefining marriage and transgender bathrooms.
She would run on the failed, scandal-ridden legacy of her husband.

Barack Obama was a perpetual power-abusing machine. Obama showcased such contempt, for the rule of law that presidential authoritarianism seemed the new normal.
She’s not a good campaigner.
She’s been likened to John F. Kennedy’s wife. Chic suits, pearls and perfectly coiffed helmet hair, supposedly made the two iconic. I don’t see it. But one thing is for sure, when Michelle O opened her mouth, it was clear that she was not Jackie O.
Albeit, Democrats believe evoking racial strife wins elections.
In the midst of the 2016 presidential election, Obama audaciously touched upon her time living in that huge White House that “was built by slaves” with the “prison like elements” she was forced to endure for two terms.
If Obama were to run, you can bet President Trump will remind America of her view of the White House.
Whoever runs against President Trump will get a thrashing. Who better than the wife of the man who damaged America the most to learn that America no longer wants any Obamas.
