How do you feel about a Biden/Obama ticket?
Michelle Obama, that is.
Joe thinks it’s a good idea.
And the crowd of tens of people who were at Joe’s rally really like it!
I guess there was kind of a small roar of the crowd.
More like a rustle maybe.
Actually, most of them appeared to be asleep.
I actually think it’s much more likely that Michelle is the candidate for President, not Joe.
But getting back to the topic at hand, watch this short clip:
That poor guy asking the question.
He probably waited all week to ask that.
Was so excited about his two-parter question that was going to drop the bomb on the second question with "Which Obama...?"
Then Joe screwed it up by answering with "I don't think he'd do it."
The "he" part totally messed up the big reveal by the questioner.
But I like how he committed to it and went with it anyway!
Those pesky pronouns!
No wonder Dems don't like pronouns, they mess everything up! 😂
Sorry, I got off topic.
Here's more from the NY Post:
Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden this week reaffirmed his desire to have former first lady Michelle Obama be his running mate.
“I sure would like Michelle [Obama] to be the vice president,” Biden said Tuesday at a campaign stop in Muscatine, Iowa.
The comment came after the former vice president was asked if he would consider nominating former President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court.
“Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it. He’d be a great Supreme Court justice,” Biden responded.
The questioner followed up with the question, “Which Obama?”
Biden responded: “They’re both incredibly qualified people and they’re such decent, honorable people.”
The pairing would be a first in American politics; there has never been a presidential ticket that included a former first lady in the VP slot.
This isn’t the first time Biden had mentioned the idea of the former first lady being his running mate or the former president being on the Supreme Court.
In September, Biden joked during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” that he had “only [asked Michelle] to be my vice president,” when asked if he had asked her for advice.
And from The Hill:
At a campaign stop in Muscatine, Iowa, Biden was asked if he would consider appointing Obama to the Supreme Court.
“Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it,” Biden responded. “He’d be a great Supreme Court justice."
But the voter retorted back, “Second question is — which Obama?”
“Well I sure would like Michelle to be the vice president,” Biden said.
Tuesday’s event is not the first time Biden has called on the recent Grammy Award winner, who remains hugely popular with voters, to serve as vice president. In a September 2019 appearance on "The Late Show," host Stephen Colbert questioned Biden as to whether he has “asked Michelle Obama for advice."
“Only to be my vice president,” Biden responded.
But he added, “I’m only joking. Michelle, I’m joking.”
Michelle Obama and those close to her have repeatedly stated that she has no interest in running for office.
Biden has floated other women as potential running mates as well. In November, he identified former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, and New Hampshire Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D) and Maggie Hassan (D).
Biden also jabbed President Trump’s defense attorneys from his Senate impeachment trial at Tuesday's event. On Monday, Trump's team, defending him against charges of abusing his power in relations with Ukraine, argued before the Senate that Obama had abused his own power in his relationship with Russia.
“They’re both incredibly qualified people. I mean and such decent, honorable people. I found it strange yesterday that in that Republican presentation, they talked about maybe Obama should have been impeached,” Biden added.
