Is Michelle Obama considering a Hillary Clinton move and running for the White House after her husband's term(s) are done?
It's not the kind of question Barack Obama or his strategists really want aired these days as he builds up his money war-chest and tries to establish the rationale for why voters should forget what he hasn't done and focus on Republican wrongs. According to a campaign aide, the president will "begin" his reelection campaign this Saturday, after more than 100 campaign fundraisers.
But the current first lady, who's playing a very active if little-noticed fundraising role across the country this cycle, sent mixed signals about her own future the other day when answering questions from some children visiting the White House.
One 12-year-old girl named Madeline asked, "Will you ever run for president?"
"Absolutely not, " the first lady replied, as tradition dictates, drawing audience laughter.
"Being President is a really hard job and its an important job. And when my husband is running for president, were right in there; were serving, too. And I think that once his terms are over, well go on to do other important things -- because there are so many ways that you can help this country and the world, even if youre not President of the United States."
A modicum of news coverage focused on Mrs. Obama's denial of interest and her outspoken assumption as a given of a second Obama term without the usual modest qualifier: "if the American people grant us another term."
But less attention was awarded to the first lady's ensuing comments about her own skills and future followed by five intriguing words: "So I probably won't run."
Probably won't run? 'Probably won't run' is not 'Absolutely not.'

The arrogance of that wookie b!tch.
Fat chance. (HA!)
Bahaha! Little Richard for President!!
I want one of those bumper stickers!
Ever notice moochele always says “my husband” and never “barak?”
I am pretty sure she would call him by his real name “barry” so she uses that device to hide the fact she is afraid she will give herself away.
Or, more than likely, her real name for him — “a*hole.”
The good news is that she can’t be any worse than what we’ve got now.”
IMO she will be much worse and in a whole lot of different ways. If you think BO is evil you ain’t seen nothing yet.
She is not elgible to be president as, we have never seen her birth certificate and she is married to a non citizen.
A large part of Obama’s 2nd term, and our monies, will be devoted to placing Hillary and Warren in the WH.
Nicely done. Brevity *is* the soul of wit. :-)
Fat chance. (HA!)
Millions would vote for her. How many millions is the question.
Sick, isn’t it.
...meet the new 2020 Air Force One
No one detests Barry more than I, but at least he is dressed OK *some* of the time (not when he is too casual or running around with his toes showing in his Kenyan sandals).
MO... well, as embarrassing as it is to see too much flesh and inappropriate clothing and undergarments now, it would be even more embarrassing were she in office.
There should be NO doubt; when people are in it, for the power; as these Lefties ALWAYS are; there is never enough power to satiate their desire.
They want it; and they want it 'bad'; and that is just what we get; and so much worse; when these amorally grounded, 'dispempowered' aka 'humble folk' in their biographies; find themselves, finally; with the 'people's power' and wield it; as a weapon; on their own self-serving behalf.
Anyone rmember; just how hard it was to get the Clinton's out of the White House?
Good chance; their fingernails, still in door jams and in embedded in Oval Office desk; as they were finally sucked out by a vacuum - or close. The Clinton's were 'unprecedented' in their rudeness; by not moving out in timely fashion so that the Bush's could finally get situated. Laughable; save for what was 'outrageous pettiness'.
And then, of course, there was the not so 'petty' thieving. . .Another reason to keep poor and humble - not - Lefties OUT of there!
“Is Michelle Obama pondering her own future run for president?”
Although this prognostication seems laughable on its face, stop and ponder for a few moments
Notwithstanding Hillary Clinton (who will be too old), just who is “on deck” for the democrats as future presidential contenders? Name three individuals...
And - having considered that - why NOT Michelle?
sorry hitlery is headed for the supremes...count on it!
While we’re at it, we might as well go ‘full ghetto’ instead of ‘half ghetto’.
I hope she runs, in 2016.
She’s probably more qualified than her husband was.
What is it with Dems? Just being someone’s wife doesn’t make you anything. Like I said when Hill was running, would you let your mechanic’s wife work on your car? Your doctor’s wife operate on your gall bladder? Your stock broker’s wife handle your portfolio? It makes you think they desire a royal family, WTF.
