During last Sunday’s Democratic presidential debate, former Vice President Joe Biden openly pledged to choose a woman as his running mate. Liberals like Biden don’t believe in merit. They prefer to virtue signal to their base instead of picking the most qualified candidate for the position. That is not to say that the most qualified person can’t be a woman, but it prevents a group of men from being considered. Conservatives believe in a merit system, liberals believe in diversity for diversity’s sake.
But if Biden is going to pick a woman, who will it be? Will he choose Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren…or maybe Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer?
What about Hillary Clinton? I know, that’s a scary thought, but people are starting to think it might actually happen.
However, you might have not considered another well-known woman. Just like Crooked Hillary, this woman has lived in the White House before. Her name is…Michelle Obama.
Before you call me crazy, think about it: Michelle is revered by the political left. Her book was the best-selling memoir of all time, and she has sold out arenas around the country on her traveling speaking tour. She obviously has name recognition, and Biden is desperate to hold onto the Obama legacy (although why he’d want that I don’t know, because it was a disastrous presidency).
Biden himself has said he would consider choosing Michelle Obama when asked at a campaign stop. Biden said he would tap Obama “in a heartbeat” if she was willing to be his running mate. Recently, a member of the Democratic National Committee said they would support a Michelle Obama Vice Presidential pick when he told the New York Times “She’s the only person I can think of who can unify the party and help us win … This election is about saving the American experiment as a republic. It’s also about saving the world. This is not an ordinary election.”
Biden has also said that he would consider appointing Michelle’s husband, former President Barack Obama (maybe you’ve heard of him) to the Supreme Court. Such a move wouldn’t be without precedent either. Former President William Howard Taft was similarly appointed as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court following his single term in the White House.
Biden is so desperate to tie himself to the Obama legacy that he’s willing to drag them both back into government life. CNN reported that “Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden said that, if elected, he would nominate former President Barack Obama to the highest court—if Obama would accept it.
During an event in Washington, Iowa, in January, Biden was asked if he would nominate Obama, his former boss, to the Supreme Court.
‘If he’d take it, yes.’ Biden replied.
He continued to explain that he would appoint to the court the kind of people who see the Constitution as a ‘living’ document, highlighting that ‘I said years ago, I’ll be satisfied when half the court is women.”
Just when we thought we were done with the Obamas, Joe Biden wants to dredge them up and put them back to work. They left the country in bad shape when they departed 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. President Trump has turned the country around. If the Biden-Obama alliance is reinstituted, Trump’s clean-up job will be undone.
