Is it possible that the Obamas want to remain in Washington, D.C., because they are not finished with politics? Of course, they want their daughter Sasha to finish high school. But Michelle Obama dropped some huge hints about her next career move. The GOP is not happy.
Political analysts are starting to believe the First Lady would consider running for the Senate, at a minimum. President Michelle Obama would be Liberal heaven. That is not too far of a reach. After all, she has a career history of powerful jobs.
So, what are those hints that she might follow her husband into the Oval Office? Political historians have described her speech on the first night of the Democratic National Conventions [DNC] as one of the best political speeches in decades.
Mrs. Obama offered up this memorable line:
‘When they go low, we go high.’
This quote from her speech is available on a sticker for anyone donating $10 to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. It features the First Lady’s face, too.
Granted, she has resisted any queries about running for office, but her latest speeches seem to be more political than the earlier ones. President Obama first came to national attention with his DNC speech, when he was a senator. In fact, both the Republican and Democratic national conventions are political star makers.
According to “The Huffington Post,” she said in one of her latest graduation speeches:
‘Funny, but there seems to an awful lot of “America this” and “America that” for a commencement speech. Most graduation speeches are about the students’ accomplishments, not the country’s.
‘Or, as in Michelle’s own past speeches, they’re about the struggle toward success or building yourself up, or about the special merits of the school that educated them.
‘Yet Michelle’s last three graduation speeches have been different from her previous 20, and not just because they’re anti-Donald.’
Michelle Obama gives her background on her “First Lady” page at the White House website. Clearly, she has woven community service throughout each of her jobs. Yes, she earned a law degree from Harvard, and an undergraduate degree from Princeton. But soon, she turned to serving people in their communities as:
- An assistant commissioner of planning and development in Chicago’s City Hall.
- The founding executive director of the Chicago chapter of Public Allies, an AmeriCorps program preparing young people for public service.
- Associate Dean Of Student Services at the University of Chicago developing the university’s first community service program.
- Vice President of Community and External Affairs for the University Of Chicago Medical Center.
The First Lady looks like a woman ready to take on bigger things. After all, husband and wife presidents seem to be a going thing these days.
