Does Obama still need advisers and how does one get such a low impact, presumably high yield, gig?

Guess we're back to Oprah or Hillary then. I'll have to wait for Hannity to break it down.

Yeah, this.  There was no real talk about Michelle being VP.  Biden said she'd have no interest.

The Hill is trying to convince us that Warren would be a bad idea.

So that's 1 more reason Warren would make a great choice.

Democrats will lose with a woman consolidate.

Why doesn't anyone understand how viscous this country is?

Hard to spin Biden's supposed senility using cute memes when the opposition was a decade plus or actual sound bites and clips against them. Stick with the sexual harrassment angle, it's... whoops, never mind that one either.

The difference is that people who vote Trump do not care ,the people that vote for democrats do.
You made your bed ,you centrists are going to lie in it.

A vote for Biden is a vote for cognitive decline. So vote Stone Cold Moron this November.

Seriously trying to understand intent here. Are you trying to amplify a voter apathy push or are you, um, a little slow?

I hear he is eyeing Corn Pop's wife with Nelson Mandela in charge of his transition team.

Michelle Obama probably had to be restrained and sedated had someone seriously suggested this to her.  As far as I can recall she absolutely despised the political and social abuse that their family endured when Barack was President, and told him in no uncertain terms that they were finished with that life after his second term ended.

I love Warren and I wish she had been the nominee, but I'm not sold on the idea of two septuagenarians on the ticket.  I'd really like someone younger.

Too bad AOC isn't eligible yet, because she'd be perfect.

Again, please read MO's book.

I would advise Obama to keep doing what he's doing.  I guess.  I mean he could speak out very strongly against Trump, but I'm sure he doesn't want to divide the country even further which is what the result would be.

She gave one great speech at the convention years ago, but Michelle has made it crystal clear she has no interest in being a politician.

Despite her talent at public speaking, if her heart isn't in the game, I'd rather not have her play.

I'm sure when the time comes and he is a former president. Trump will do the same.

I love her but the rightwinger noise machine would love to hate her for place of birth alone.
It'd be birtherism round 2.

Plus I'd rather leave anyone currently in office, in place.

It would kick ass if Obama started piling on Trump right now

Don't get me wrong, I get that she doesn't want the job, but at the same time that doesn't make me want her less for the position. Personally I'd rather have someone with a sense of right and wrong, who cares and is compassionate. The fact she isn't seeking power in my opinion only strengthens my trust in her. If she wanted the job, I'd probably be more inclined to chuck her onto the heap of meh VP candidates.

Anyways, it'll be interesting when the VP nomination actually comes down the line. Until then I think I'll skip speculating on who he might actually pick.

I don't blame her, she already spent 8 years being vilified by Rethuglicans and racists.

Sorry, I repeated myself.
