What does everyone say? Hillary Clinton 2016, and Michelle Obama 2024.
Unfortunately, it’s not going to happen.
Friday morning President Obama was on the “Sway in the Morning” show, and he said First Lady Michelle Obama “will never run for office.”
Obama said, “She will never run for office. She is as talented and brilliant a person as there is and I could not be prouder of her, but Michelle does not have the patience or the inclination to actually be a candidate herself. That’s one thing y’all can take to the bank.”
Michelle Obama has emerged as Hillary Clinton’s most potent surrogate on the campaign trail, passionately making the case for the Democratic nominee in battleground states like North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia — and even the typically reliably conservative Arizona — while also tearing into her opponent without ever mentioning him by name.
President Obama did insist that both he and Michelle would “continue to be very active” with issues they care about, such as the president’s My Brother’s Keeper and the first lady’s Let Girls Learn initiatives, saying, “So we’re gonna be doing a lot of work. We’ll just be doing it a different way.”
