There have been whispers and speculations about the Democratic Party potentially pulling a bait-and-switch for the 2024 presidential nomination, replacing Joe Biden with none other than Michelle Obama. Floyd Brown, author of “Counterpunch: An Unlikely Alliance of Americans Fighting Back for Faith and Freedom,” suggests that the Democrats are subtly signaling their intention to run for Michelle Obama in the next election.
Brown recently appeared on Newsmax, discussing the upcoming race for the White House. He mentioned RFK Jr.’s campaign launch, which is expected to “shake up the race” for the Democrats. However, he then dropped a bombshell, stating, “I think Michelle Obama is going to be the Democratic nominee.” Brown added that the party’s decision to move the convention to Chicago, Obama’s hometown, was a significant hint.
Guest Rick Gates, a former Trump campaign aide, acknowledged that Michelle Obama would be a formidable candidate on the Democratic side but questioned whether she would actually pursue the nomination. Gates pointed out that Obama had not enjoyed her time in the White House and was unlikely to want to return. Nonetheless, he conceded that if she did enter the race, it would indeed shake things up and potentially provide Biden with a graceful exit.
Brown is not alone in delivering this warning about a possible Michelle Obama candidacy. Former Clinton strategist Dick Morris and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich have also noted her continued popularity among Democrats and the potential threat she could pose to Biden.
However, it’s essential to remember that Michelle Obama has repeatedly insisted she has no interest in running for president. In a 2022 interview, she even claimed to “detest” the idea. But history shows that many presidential candidates, including Hillary Clinton, have denied their intentions to run before ultimately launching their campaigns.
Is Michelle Obama biding her time, waiting for the right moment to sweep in and become the Democratic nominee for 2024? If she were to announce her candidacy, the media frenzy would be intense, and she would undoubtedly become a formidable opponent in the race. Only time will tell if these theories hold any weight.
