There is a lot of talk on the Internet that Hillary is very sick and is going to drop out, and that the Democratic National Committee is going to replace her with is Michelle Obama.
I don't know if it's true or not, but if it is true, I think it's a smart move. Who else could they nominate? Joe Biden? Say hello to President Trump if they do that. Nobody is going to get excited about Joe Biden. Besides, he's cognitive problems of his own- if you haven't noticed.
Nominating Michelle; that's genius. Obviously, Barack would continue living in the White House and guiding her every step of the way. So, it would be like a third term for him- and people would get that. It would be a way around the Constitutional limitation of two terms, but hey, it would be perfectly legal. And, to those who were going to vote for Hillary because she would be the first female President- they would still get their wish.
Plus, Michelle Obama is a lawyer, and for many years before he was elected President, she made more money than he did. She certainly understands how the government works and duties of the office.
They say that after Woodrow Wilson lost his mind, his wife ran the country for two years. Well, Michelle is more qualified than she was- by a light year.
Could Michelle beat Trump? There's no guarantee, but she'd have a chance, and I think it would be close. Hollywood would rally around her. The stars would come out to support her. And Barack would campaign hard for her: conveying that we'd be getting two for the price of one.
I dare say she would be the strongest replacement candidate for Hillary.
And, I dare say that the plan must exist at least as a contingency. They have to be prepared.
So just think: if the race comes down to Michelle vs. Trump, it guarantees that the results are going to be historic- no matter who wins.
