As the Trump v. DeSantis controversy continues among GOP groups, the Democrats must choose their own presidential nominee, with a potential front-runner giving the first indication that she may be running.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama has often been hailed as a Democratic secret weapon for gaining support from the party’s grassroots, making her the front-runner to challenge the GOP nominee, even ahead of incumbent President Joe Biden, should she decide to run.
Obama acknowledged that she believed Biden was “doing a great job” as president at an ABC News special on Sunday, but oddly she didn’t support him for a run in 2024.
She even stumbled when asked if she would like to see Biden run for president once more: “You know, I will have to see.” Obama interpreted her reluctance as a straightforward willingness to acknowledge that accepting the position of Commander in Chief was a difficult choice that would need to be taken by the president and First Lady Jill Biden.

“It’s a personal decision that he and his family have to make. Probably, if I hadn’t been through it, I would feel more cavalier about opining on it. But I know it’s a personal call, and I don’t want to be one of the millions of people weighing in on what he should do, he and Jill should do,” Obama said.
“It’s probably the only job that few people know what it feels like to do, but everybody thinks they know how to do it,” Obama continued. “But it’s a tough job and I think that he’s doing the best he can under some tough circumstances.”
On Christmas Eve 2021, Joe Rogan said that if Obama wanted the job, she could win the Democratic candidacy.
“I really believe if Michelle Obama runs, she wins,” Rogan informed his audience. “She’s great. She’s intelligent. She’s articulate. She’s the wife of the best president that we have had in our lifetime in terms of like representative of intelligent, articulate people.”

More on this story via The Daily Caller:
Obama has first-hand experience of the sacrifice it takes to run the country after serving eight years as First Lady alongside her husband. Biden, who is 79 and will be 15 days shy of his 82nd birthday on November 5, 2024, said in September that it was “much too early” to decide on another presidential run.

Although his party took less of a beating in the midterms than Republicans had hoped, his presidential approval ratings are too low for him to argue his policies are popular nationwide. Polling from FiveThirtyEight shows only a 41% approval rating, with over 53% disapproving of his job as president.
That is where Obama has her opening to become the first black female to be elected President of the United States under the Democratic party ticket. CONTINUE READING…
