    According to Breitbart, Michelle Obama has now topped Hillary Clinton (as it were) as the most admired woman in our country:

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/...-beats-hillary-clinton-as-most-admired-woman/

    While I utterly loathe Clinton, I admire Obama with that same passion turned positive, and was delighted to learn that I'm not alone.

    She's an exceptional, strong, loving, funny and insightful individual, and if she were to become our first female president, it would be as proud a moment for our nation as Clinton's coronation would have proven dark and cringe-worthy.

    Is this Gallup poll an indication that she can and might make a successful run in 2020?

    Is she the only person in the country who could beat Trump?

    What might an Obama presidency look like?

    Can she unite the country in the same way that the majority reaction to Trump has divided it, fairly or otherwise?

    How joyfully electric would that moment in January 2020 be if it is Obama placing her hand upon the Jefferson Bible?

    I never got the hero worship with Michelle or Barry. What makes them special? What revolutionary policies do they bring to the table? Michelle could win but because voters would treat it like a popularity contest instead of voting on policy.

    I doubt she would be interested and it would set her up as a massive target for all the right wing hatred

    Well, it's always a popularity contest. :banana:

    And as Barry was the first to admit, she wears the pants. :boxing:

    She's also to the left of him, and combine that with her gumption and his popularity, and I think we'd have a power couple capable of bringing our country into the 21st century for real.

    Also, he'd be Best. 1st Spouse. EVER. :blowkiss:

    It just makes me super-tingly. :)

    Well, we need to change her mind.

    I'm thinking about starting a letter writing campaign...

    Obama changed American minds in relation to health care. I have seen a definite shift toward universal health care

    While I'm appalled by the ACA, if MO could steer us to Medicare For ALL...

    Why did the sheriff scene from Blazing saddles just come to mind?

    And this is the shift I have seen. Obama wanted Medicare for all but he settled for the ACA

    Yeah, I think she would have - and will - put on the gloves in a way that he felt he couldn't.

    What we as a nation must STOP doing, is replacing folks admirable qualities with ASSUMPTIONS about competency at gov.

    Trump is a DISASTER, and we don't need any OPRAH's snooping around.

    Michelle is a joy. A treasure. But sh is not an organizer of government and all its intricacies.

    Some good points, but I think MO would be an INCREDIBLY fine leader, and has deep understanding of the role.

    Those admirable qualities may be harnessed, in other ways. President is a push and shove as well as a southern grace thingie. She would be tarnished in the journey.


    I do get your DESIRE for the stability, the trustworthiness of the OBAMA era. And your desire that we find our way back.

    I think if this continues you will have a Democrat controlled house and possibly senate AND a high proportion of elected women. If that happens expect military spending to be cut, America to pull out of a lot of the theatres of war and a huge spend on infrastructure which includes health care

    1. No, she's not interested in running.. I believe her
    2. Hell no, I could swing a cat blindfolded in a cave and hit 4 people capable of that
    3. Much like 2009-2017, I suspect.... Stable and Classy
    4. Yes, but not as president
    5. Very, but better if accompanied by Trump accepting his grand jury summons the same day

    Honestly, barring some idiot move by the DNC I really don’t see their being an issue beating trump. Hell he lost the popular vote after the DNC ignored the voters and put an individual up that most people cannot stand.

    OTOH - I think she would be a good president and I would get a little joy out of watching an Obama mop the floor with trump.
