The biggest question hovering over the 2020 Presidential Election is if Michelle Obama will jump into the race.
Americans got their biggest clue yet as to that answer.
That’s due to the fact that Barack Obama dropped this huge hint about Michelle Obama running for president.
Obama appeared at a leadership expo in Singapore and made newsworthy comments about how women were “indisputably” better leaders than men.
“Now women, I just want you to know; you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you’re better than us (men),” Obama began.
Former President Obama then claimed that countries around the world could solve all their problems if for two years they just elected women.
“I’m absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see a significant improvement across the board on just about everything … living standards and outcomes,” former President Obama exclaimed.
Obama alleged that women would correct the problems created by the supposed ‘patriarchy.’
“If you look at the world and look at the problems it’s usually old people, usually old men, not getting out of the way,” Obama added.
“It is important for political leaders to try and remind themselves that you are there to do a job, but you are not there for life, you are not there in order to prop up your own sense of self importance or your own power,” Obama concluded.
Of course Obama doesn’t really believe this.
If Obama actually thought women were “indisputably” better leaders than men, he would have stepped aside in 2008 and passed on challenging Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Presidential primary.
But what stood out about these remarks was they were the clearest indication yet Barack Obama was paving the way to eventually endorsing his wife for president.
Obama claiming old men not stepping aside led to all the world’s ills could only be seen as a shot at 77-year-old Joe Biden.
Even though Biden served faithfully as Obama’s Vice President, Obama did not endorse his candidacy and even reportedly told Biden he didn’t have to run.
At the time, political observers took Obama’s reluctance to endorse Biden as Obama not having confidence in Biden’s ability to win in 2020.
That still may be true.
But in light of these recent comments, Obama’s silence on supporting Biden can now be viewed as Obama wanting to keep his options open to eventually endorsing his wife’s candidacy.
There is a chance – because of the Democrat Party rules that allocate primary and caucus delegates proportionally – that the Presidential primary season will conclude without a nominee amassing the delegates necessary to win the nomination on the first ballot at the national convention next summer.
In that case, the party will be desperate for a consensus candidate that can unite all the party’s factions.
The only candidate that fits that bill is Michelle Obama.
And Barack Obama’s comments about women being superior leaders can only be seen as the opening argument in the case the Obamas will make that America must elect Michelle Obama as the 46th President.
