I think we should draft Michelle Obama to run

I was just talking to my sister and we were talking about the candidates and how we like a lot of them fine but are not blown away and we started discussing who we wish would run and we both brought up Michelle Obama at the same time. She has the type of smarts, charisma and magic I look for! If she jumped in she would be my first pick easily.

2. I wouldn't wish that on her or her family.

 



I think she has paid her dues.


Of course if it was something she truly WANTED to do (which as far as I know it is not). I would seriously consider supporting her.

3. What if she doesn't want to? She's made it quite clear that she isn't interested

 

in running for office at all.

8. I would love to have her as a personal favorite and a damn smart candidate. However, I feel

 

uncomfortable with the optics of a dynastic candidacy.

Hillary had some distance from her days as First Lady including a senate seat and Sec. of State.

I don't feel Michelle is un-qualified for the task but it might be a better thing that she runs after 2020.

10. If you read her book

 

You will know that she has no interest in running for office. It's a wonderful book. I recommend it highly.

On edit. How about a SCOTUS justice?

13. We all love her, but she doesn't want to run

 

If you read her book she makes it clear that she doesn't like politics and will never choose to run.

16. She has indicated that she has no desire to run

 

Why the hell can't people just respect her wishes?

It irritates me beyond belief - we have a plethora of qualified candidates. Why try to enlist an unwilling participant?

20. She doesn't want it

 

And I don't blame her. She endured so much hate during their 8 years. She deserves to ride high and in control of her own destiny. Yes, she is a great human being and I am loving how much love she is receiving now.
