If you haven’t heard, rumors are swirling that Joe Biden will be suddenly replaced as the DNC nominee and favorite in 2024. And the name being bandied about as that replacement just got mentioned again: Michelle Obama.
The major why behind this thought is pretty obvious. Joe Biden is no longer fit to serve our nation in office, any elected office. Not only is his age and near-constant blunders a giant looming shadow on his presidency, but his approval rating has only fallen over the years.
The fact that he is pretty much neck and neck with former President Donald Trump, a man who has been indicted four times in less than a year, speaks volumes about just how unpopular the Biden name has become.
Therefore, if the DNC and the party as a whole are to regain any ground, they will have to admit at some point that Biden is not the future of the White House.
But who would be?
Of Democrats currently running for president, none of them provide the assurances needed. Clearly, Vice President Kamala Harris won’t get it, and Gavin Newsom is too white, straight, and male to do the job.
Enter Michelle Obama, despite claims she never intends to return to the White House.
At this point, I must note that such rumors aren’t just coming from conspiracy theorists on the right. In fact, Michelle Obama’s own biographer has floated the idea most recently.
According to him, she is basically “copying” her husband’s path to the White House, including running a voter registration group, penning two autobiographies, and introducing a big name at the DNC.
And if the path looks the same, it stands to reason that the end result will be similar.
Besides, there is this whole Barack-is-actually-gay scandal to deal with now, coincidentally coming out just in time for the 2024 election cycle. Undoubtedly, such a scandal will only help the Obamas gain leftist support should they consider moving back to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
But will all this speculation really amount to anything? What do you think?
