Hillary-Michelle in 2016? All-First Lady Ticket Generates Buzz

by at . Comments

There have been presumptions that former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will make another White House run come 2016.

She leads a recent 2016 presidential poll (yes, there was one), and given her resume and name recognition at this point, that's not a real surprise.

But this is: Another, even more intriguing idea floating around the web this week is that current FLOTUS Michelle Obama could be her running mate.

Hillary and Michelle

“All due respect for President Obama and Vice President Biden, but that would truly be a dream team,” former Clinton spokeswoman Karen Finney said.

“Both women are proven leaders who’ve raised children, so dealing with Congress would be a snap!” she added, having apparently never seen Congress.

Democratic strategist Chris Lehane also said that “this reflects the growing awareness that it is time for the glass ceiling of the last old boys club to be firmly shattered.”

“I look forward to the day when a woman can run for the presidency without so much parody and fanfare,” ex-Al Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile said.

A recent poll from Qunnipiac University found that in a hypothetical presidential race, Hillary Clinton would likely trump any Democratic challengers.

“Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would start a 2016 presidential campaign with enormous advantages,” said Qunnipiac's Peter A. Brown.

“She obviously is by far the best known and her more than 20 years in the public spotlight allows her to create a very favorable impression on the American people.”

As for Michelle Obama joining the ticket? We'd put the chances of that at just above microscopic, but a future run for office could be more likely.

Clinton ran for U.S. Senate in the last year of husband Bill's presidency, serving from 2001-2009 before joining the Obama administration as its top diplomat.

Most likely, if she's interested in politics at all beyond 2016, Michelle would follow that blueprint. Until then, let the speculation continue to run rampant.

Michelle Obama has not earned the right to run for President. Never been a Senator. Hillary wasn't wanted after her husband. She had some extreme views..being the mother of only 1 child. Na..neither of these women would be good for America!!

Oh please! Michelle Obama as Vice President!! If that isn't politics. Hillary as President, but she better pick a worthy VP or she will NOT get my vote and I have been in her corner from the start.

Scary to even have people think that this is a "Dream Team". More like a "Nightmare Team" for the USA!
I still advocate if you are not a taxpayer you do not get a vote! We would not have to worry about this then. A lot of problems would be solved without the dregs of society having the same say as hard working people just trying to eek out a living and building something better for their kids!

so raising children is sufficient qualification to run a country now? Its just that easy?

Must be a joke. Michelle has no background in politics other than attending events in fancy outfits.
Oh wait, kinda like her husband before he was POTUS.

God Forbid! I do not like either one of them. They are both classless and trampy. Hillary for throwing the Diplomat, Chris Stevens under the bus and saying that the 4 people killed in Benghazi didn't matter and Moosie for dancing like a hooker. NO WAY NO HOW!

I know a lot about hookers and she fits the bill to a tee.
Both are low class and have big mouths.
Why not quiz Hillary about Whitewater? How about quizzing Michele about having to give up her law license for insurance fraud?
Interesting HUH?
