Pundits have been speculating about Michelle Obama’s future since her husband left the White House.
Will she run for President and challenge Donald Trump?
She made an announcement that gave a clue as to her plans.
Michelle Obama will do her first public event where she will sit for a “conversation” at the American Institute of Architects in Orlando, Florida.
The Hill reports:
“Michelle Obama is scheduled to speak later this month at an architecture conference in Orlando, Fla.
On April 27, the former first lady will sit for a “conversation” at an event by the American Institute of Architects, The Washington Examiner reported.
“Over the last eight years while in the White House, former First Lady Michelle Obama has worked tirelessly to champion a number of important initiatives designed to make our world a better place,” says the webpagehighlighting Obama as a speaker.”
However, the event is shrouded in mystery.
The website lists no details.
The Hill also reports:
“The page says the former first lady transformed the position and became a “role model, champion, and inspiration for women, families, and young people across America and around the world.”
It highlighted four of Obama’s initiatives, including Let’s Move!, which is part of an effort to address childhood obesity, and Let Girls Learn, which is aimed toward helping girls around the world to go to school.
The page does not offer additional details about the event.”
Michelle Obama attending an event in the key swing state of Florida made pundits sit up and take notice.
Was this a hint she was running for President?
Most candidates trek to the early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire to la the groundwork for their candidacies.
So what does Michelle Obama’s visit mean?
Both she and her husband have denied she has any interest in a career in politics.
In fact, in an interview with Oprah she claimed she would not make a run for the White House.
Business Insider reports:
“Among many other reasons for her non-interest, Michelle Obama thinks that’s too big an ask for members of a family that already have been through it for eight years. Not something you “cavalierly just sort of ask a family to do again,” given that it it tends to bring so much disruption. In the interview, Winfrey, looking at the First Lady dubiously through her journalist glasses, forgot to ask if that was a comment on Hillary Clinton’s candidacy.”
Democrats who worship Barack Obama will not give up hope on Michelle Obama running for President until it is no longer possible for her to run.
But would it be a good thing?
Donald Trump won the election because Americans judged Obama’s Presidency to be a failure.
Trump’s victory was a backlash to Obama’s radical leftist politics and globalist philosophy.
Michelle Obama would be running to carry the torch for an agenda the American people rejected.
The idea of a Michelle Obama candidacy sounds nice in theory- a First Lady running for Barack Obama’s third term.
But the Democrats already tried that with Hillary Clinton.
And it ended in failure.
