TO Michelle Obama It changed her life when, in 1989, she met the man who would become her husband and President of the United States. Barack Obama. Both worked at the renowned Chicago law firm Sidley & Austin. She, twenty-five, was a promising lawyer and junior associate at the firm, and Barack, twenty-seven, was just an intern. What they had in common was that they had studied at Harvard and were interested in social issues. Love blossomed and they eventually married in 1992 and their marriage produced their daughters Malia and Sasha.
In 2008, her husband became President of the United States and she became one of the most popular First Ladies of the United States due to her accessible style and charisma. Today it is back in the headlines because it is at the center of theories (it is not clear whether they are conspiratorial) that it is the secret letter from the Democratic Party running for the presidency to the current president to replace. Joe Biden.
The enormous controversy surrounding Biden’s memory problems, his constant mistakes and his advanced age (he is 81 years old, making him the oldest head of state in the country’s history, and if he wins the election he will end his term at 86). ) have opened the debate about whether or not he is qualified to be the Democratic Party candidate.
The White House has been unable to quell the narrative that the president’s candidacy is a cushion while Democrats find another suitable candidate. First we talked about the current vice president, Kamala Harris, a strong woman, but who did not shine during the government and is not particularly popular in the polls. And now, more recently, conservative voices are beginning to speculate about none other than Michelle Obama.
Donald Trump has said he doesn’t think Biden “will get it done” and when Ron DeSantis While still in the race, the Florida governor speculated that Democrats “could replace him with someone else.” In the final hours it was the former Republican candidate Vivek Ramaswamy who stated that the Democrats could replace Biden with Michelle Obama because, in his opinion, she already has the third-best chance of winning the presidency, ahead of even her, based on the Las Vegas general election measurements Nikki Haleythe dying Republican candidate challenging Trump for the nomination.
Ramaswamy has gone further in his statements to the conservative network Fox News. The businessman claims without evidence that the special counsel report questioning Biden’s cognitive abilities represents a “convenient path” for Democrats to nominate the former first lady. That is, according to some Republicans, the outcome of the investigation was a kind of theater to find the necessary context to force the departure of Joe Biden.
The conclusions of the special prosecutor Robert Hur Biden’s handling of classified documents revealed that his memory is “fuzzy” because he has forgotten key details such as when his vice presidency ended and when his son Beau died. However, the truth is that the prosecutor’s opinion is not supported by a medical report.
Not all conservatives believe in these theories. George W. Bush’s former deputy chief of staff, who was consulted by several American media outlets, Karl Rove, said this speculation about Michelle Obama ignores the former first lady’s alleged disdain for the political world. “No, look, she hates politics. Read his autobiography; She didn’t want her husband to run for the Illinois State Senate. I didn’t want him to run for president. “She’s not a political animal,” Rove said.
Rove is one of the most respected moderate Republican voices in the world of political commentary. The experienced analyst also recalled that back in 2020 he had to suppress theories about the alleged replacement of Joe Biden by the then governor of New York. Andrew Cuomowith Michelle Obama as his vice president.
Despite reservations about Obama, Rove stated that he was not convinced that Biden was his party’s final nominee. Many analysts in Washington agree with this analysis and believe that there is a lot of selfishness in the president’s decision not to step down and make way for younger figures, a phenomenon that is also being repeated in Congress. However, the question remains: If Michelle Obama is not the chosen one, who could succeed Joe Biden in the worst case scenario? The primary campaign can be a long one for Democrats.
