Ex-First Lady Michelle Obama has been featured in the news lately. The Boston Herald told:
Michelle Obama looks more and more like the one who will carry the aging, forgetful Biden over the finish line, possibly in a landslide that will make it difficult for Trump to stay in power.
Mrs. Obama shared the story of her battle with depression this week. “I don’t think I’m unusual in that, but I’d be remiss to say that part of this depression is also a result of what we’re seeing in terms of the protests, the continued racial unrest, that has plagued this country since its birth. I have to say that waking up to the news, waking up to how this administration has or has not responded, waking up to yet another story of a Black man or a Black person somehow being dehumanized, or hurt or killed, or falsely accused of something, it is exhausting. And it has led to a weight that I haven’t felt in my life.”
As The Hill reported:
The Committee to Draft Michelle Obama for VP touted the former first lady in an open letter as the “most admired woman in the world” and said she could help Biden in his campaign to oust Trump out of office and reunify the country if the Democratic ticket is successful in November.
They announced, “As a candidate, she has the power not only to assure victory over Donald Trump but to unite a bitterly divided nation and continue her life’s tireless work for the American people. As a leader, her stature and preexisting rapport with heads of state are unparalleled,”
Plus added, “Recent polls affirm this, but we cannot afford to take any chances. Mr. Biden must put forward the strongest ticket possible for a crushing landslide that not only unseats Mr. Trump but throws the un-American spirit of Trumpism on the ash heap of history. One that also strengthens the opportunity to win down the ticket and take back the U.S. Senate. This is why we encourage Mr. Biden to formally invite Ms. Obama,”
And expressed, “We realize such an invitation is a sensitive matter for Ms. Obama, one to which she has given great thought and declined in the past. Of course, we honor whatever she decides now, but we would be remiss if we did not put forth the considerations that we feel underscore her singularity as a leader for this challenging time.” There has to be a good reason why Biden has waited this long.
