Speculation Builds on Michelle Obama Senate Run First Lady could be positioning herself for a run at Mark Kirk's seat in 2016

FLOTUS for Senate? It wasn't that long ago that such a slogan would seem absurd, but political wags are beginning to wonder whether Michelle Obama is mulling a run for Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk's seat in 2016. A Thursday column in Reuters suggests that Obama would be the only candidate with a large enough profile to unseat the Republican. The column also points to Obama's recent willingness to debate the merits of her school lunch program with Republicans, a trip to China, fundraising and her stance on the kidnapped Nigerian school girls as other signs that her tone is turning more political.

Illinois should have all the talent it deserves if they vote her in.

I think she hates D.C. with a passion. I think she probably also hates BO with a passion.

She is not interested in working for a living, or even pretending to work in the Senate.

Oh, HELL no. I know we say we don’t want a Congress full of lawyers, but I’d like to think we don’t have to settle for simpletons.

Her running will mean that Obama gets some protection by the party.

“...only candidate with a large enough profile ...”

Yep, that has been said many times about Moo. Her profile is so large that that Climate Change Scientists have mistaken her shadow for a solar eclipse and blamed it on global warming.

The Dems could have run Mickey Mouse for that Senate Seat and it would have been a win.

But for Prez....she got beat by a clean and articulate (cough cough) unknown black muslim dictator.

One democrat is as bad as another. They are all 100% evil. What difference does it make which one sits in this or that seat. They all hate America with equal venom.

The Obamas have been hanging on to that nothing-much house of theirs on Chicago's dingy south side for a reason, that's for sure.

They have no thoughts of ever retiring there....it's about as far from being a Hawaiian ocean estate as you could ever get.

However, I have a hunch she won't mind using that house as a campaign residency address and, as a U.S. Senator, staying there an acceptable minimum amount of time....alone....while post-presidency Obama stays in their Hawaiian digs....alone.

In other words, after the White House residency.....a divorce.....or a separation a la the Clinton's sham "marriage".

Remember, you read it here first.
