Skip to comments.Michelle Obama for Senate? PPP Says Yes

Could First Lady Michelle Obama go the route of Hillary Clinton?
It’s only hypothetical this point, but a survey done by Public Policy Polling gives Mrs. Obama the lead over Sen. Mark Kirk 51 to 40 percent, should she choose to challenge Kirk in 2016 for an Illinois senate seat. From PPP.
If Michelle Obama decided she wanted to follow the Hillary Clinton route once her husband leaves office in 2016 and go to the Senate, she'd have the upper hand on Mark Kirk. She leads him 51/40 in a hypothetical head to head. Kirk's approval numbers are ok with 34% of voters approving of him to 19% who disapprove. But those numbers are no match for the first lady, who's seen positively by 60% of voters to 33% with a negative one.

I read a couple of months ago that there was talk of having Michelle as the next Dem candidate for President since Obama won’t be able to run again (unless he simply does anyway!) and he has effectively prevented any new material from developing in the Dem party.
This is all part of a plan, and this is the “testing the waters” moment. I’m sure if she runs, she’ll win, and then she’ll be lined up to be the next Dem presidential candidate.
Affirmative action works in the Senate too.
POLL??????????? Who the hell did they poll, the sixth grade in south Chicago?
She won’t be getting as many family and friends vacations nor will she have the WH chef at her beck and call. No, the Senate would be slumming it.
Oh I’m sure she’d win in a landslide in IL.
From the time Obama won the last election, I felt that she saw herself as president after her husband’s term is over. This is not a joke. Samuel Jackson has already mentioned that she could be a Supreme Court Justice or president. He is serious and she thinks it’s already hers.
Not hard to imagine the First Lady landing in the Senate. Doubtful, however, she’d have a successful POTUS bid.
Michelle Obama might not be any worse than the next Democrat contender, but the familiarity fatigue is discouraging enough. Same goes for the Bush, Clinton, and Kennedy families.
Who said anything about Obama leaving office in 2016?
Hillary had a history political involvement and activism prior to her run.
Lecturing kids on their diet and exercise has been Michelle’s main activity, and doesn’t exactly position her for a run.
I doubt it. I think she hates it hates it hates it, having to go aroun’ an’ ack respeckful an’ shi’, leass when the media watchin’.
And you think that a bunch of democratic sheep in IL care about what the the president’s wife did, or did not do ? She wins this in a walk.
I don’t disagree. but Mochelle’s past actions seem to indicate that she (or Hussein) would not be interested in her running for office.
Lol, fair enough. We know both of them don’t really like to work:)
sorry but I ave to say it.
you have go to be F-IN joking.
The wman has never done a days work in her life , though saying that neither had her husband.
She is worse than her husband and I think even more radical.
Said this before, it;s high time for all conservatives to move out of the liberal states like IL, MA, CA, and move to states like FL, VA, NC, CO, NM and make those states solid republican and have your votes be counted and not ignored .
Those states where these Detroit council woman, MA, CA are all lose so why give them your tax money, get out of there and move to a state which needs your vote .
It’s the lefts worse nightmare as they need VA, FL, NC, CO, NM at least one of them to win an election and if we can make those states solid republican we win and then let them have their liberal socilaist, commie, pro illegal, pro homo, big spending utopia.
Oh God........ Please say it ain’t so!!!!! ..........
Hildebeast Part II.
I’d take a Bush dynasty over these arrogant narcissists’ dynasty anytime.
I don’t think she wants the job.
And Michelle is not a follower of anyone. If she says “No”, she means “no”.
I suspect that politically grasping husband and wife dynasties predate her and existed at least before Shakespeare gave life to Lady MacBeth.
Perhaps some were to be found in ancient Rome or even Egypt. Who knows?
