For mourning Democrats, Michelle Obama offers hope
The former first lady’s super-fans, still wishing she would run, hotly anticipate her next move.
Michelle Obama has said, over and over again, that she is not going to run for president.
That has not stopped some people from continuing to try to recruit her to run.
After Hillary Clinton’s loss in the November election left Democrats in disarray, the hashtag “#DraftMichelle” trended on Twitter. People started Facebook pages and petitions calling on her to run for office, whether for president or chair of the Democratic National Committee.
Jimmy Fallon, hosting the former first lady on “The Tonight Show” earlier this month, toasted Obama by thanking her for “being a strong, smart, independent woman — an activist, a style icon and a great dancer, and showing us all what it would look like if Beyoncé married a much nerdier Jay Z.” Then he begged her to run for president in 2020.
Even as the former first lady transitions back to private life, the buzz persists, with her admirers watching to see where she goes next, and some not willing to let go of the idea of a third Obama administration.
Erik Reich, a chiropractor in Connecticut who started a super PAC called “Ready For Michelle 2020” last fall, said he wasn’t deterred by Obama’s repeated insistence that she has no intention of running for office.
“Almost all of them say that. I would take that with a grain of salt,” he said.
Reich said he was inspired to start his own PAC in part because Stephen Colbert showed how easy it was on his old Comedy Central show. He plans to fundraise for the group as a hobby, with the hopes of putting the money toward assisting progressive candidates in 2018 — and, ideally, Obama herself in 2020.
Reich described the former first lady’s appeal this way: “She brought a lot of class to the office. She’s been very out front with certain issues, and she’s going to have four years to build upon that, and I think it’s going to be interesting to see where she goes in four years.”
“I think we’re ready for a woman president,” he added. “Everybody likes her. Well, not everybody, but close.”
Once a reluctant political spouse, Obama is now one of the most popular figures in and outside of Washington. Her approval ratings, pegged at 68 percent last week by Gallup, are higher than her husband’s, and many women adore her.
“Michelle Obama, at least in my observation, has come through this experience with the hopes and dreams, the devotion, of women around this country in a way that so far is really unmatched,” said Ruth Mandel, the director of Rutgers University’s Eagleton Institute of Politics. “She has become iconic, awesome for people.”
