Joe Biden’s administration could be in big trouble.
Democrats are clamoring for him to leave.
And he got one piece of news about Michelle Obama that could change everything.
Joe Biden will be 82 years old for the 2024 election, and if he were re-elected he would be 86 when he finishes his term.
Biden is already so decrepit at age 80 that it’s hard to imagine what he will be like 6 years from now at age 86. Surely there is no way he could perform the duties of President at that advanced age.
Democrats know this, but since Biden is dead-set on running again in 2024, they are between a rock and a hard place.
Do they force him not to run again and withdraw their support? Do they hold their nose and get behind him, knowing that he might not last another 4-year term?
Their choices are very limited and difficult. But some people are proposing another solution.
Michelle Obama is one of the most popular Democrats in America. Of course, a big reason for her popularity is that she’s never had to hold public office and make any hard decisions.
She is simply a figurehead. But nevertheless, her popularity with liberal women voters is astronomical and she would be an immediate threat to Joe Biden if she jumped into the race.
And that’s what some Democrats would like to see happen.
According to Fox News, “Former White House and Pentagon official Douglas MacKinnon said if not Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris, Democrats could look to a past superstar to create a more viable ticket.”
“Among the names of possible contenders, former first lady Michelle Obama’s name was floated ahead of the last Democratic presidential primary, although she has repeatedly denied any interest in seeking office. At 59, and with her ‘it’ factor (as MacKinnon labels it) she could emerge as a top candidate and Democrats could look to push her to run.”
“According to a recent Politico article, Biden faces doubt from some ‘high-level Democrats’ who may only support the president because they fear what a Biden-less ticket could look like.”
“According to the Politico report, a senator at the National Governor’s Association meeting in February went as far as to question whether Biden had the stamina for the presidential campaign season,” the article continued.
All of this is especially problematic for the Democrats if Ron DeSantis is the nominee for the Republicans in 2024.
Biden has already beaten Donald Trump, but he has never faced off against DeSantis, who is far younger and has far more stamina and energy than the decrepit Biden.
Democrats have been whispering behind the scenes about how much trouble they are in if DeSantis wins the nomination, and many of them privately admit that there is no way Biden could beat him.
If Democrats are so desperate, they may turn to someone like Michelle Obama who is younger and has fewer senior moments.
Michelle Obama is totally unqualified to be President, but she may be the Democrats best bet if they have to face off against DeSantis.
