    Speaker Obama has a sweet ring to it, eh ?!
    Why would he take the demotion?

    Spin again.
    What does that have to do with anything I said about BO not coming back to Chicago. Reading is Fund-a-mental.

    Spin what? That BO isn't coming back to Chicago? Try reading the News for a change rather than trying to come off the top of your head with something that doesn't even apply to what I said.

    How would any newspaper know what plans the President has vis a vis his daughters after the presidency. The President or any other parent usually doesn't follow their child off to college.

    I recognize this theory is your opinion...but newspapers and wherther one reads one or not is irrelevant.

    I don't think Michelle would run for office because she has a lot more of that rock star appeal she craves as ex first lady than she would as jr senator. MO's not about to take orders ftom anyone, especially We, the Peons .

    Well, I guess when you figure out which reporter got the exclusive. Then let it leak out. Then see it in what Magazine and or Newspaper. You will have caught the meaning then.

    Which then you can aptly do what the politicians do then. Flip.....on your words. Or don't say anything at all.

    Oh and of course the Illinois politicians dropping the ball on the Museum.....still hasn't changed and was reported too.

    Perhaps your opinion can put 2 and 2 together.....next time.

    Mornin SMW.....Maybe she will run in some other state. But one thing is clear she wont be running here.

    Jesse Junior will be getting out in 2015 and then will be back home. Will be looking to get back into the game. Congressmen wont be open to him anymore. But now Senator.....could just appease his appetite and lavish habits.

    There is a precedence here with Hillary Clinton doing the same. But Hillary choose to run in New York instead of Arkansas. Illinois is a deep blue state, not not as blue as New York. Illinois has a PVI of D plus six vs. New York's PVI of D plus 12. But to run in New York either Gillibrand or Schumer would have to retire or perhaps be appointed to a cabinet position prior to Michelle run.

    But Illinois for 2016 anyway looks like the best bet for her if she is considering a senate bid. It is home territory and she would have the Chicago Democratic machine behind her. Kirk was elected in a wave election year for the Republicans and is very vulnerable. A Hillary Clinton at the top of the ticket with Michelle running for senate probably would be enough for her to win. But all of this is pure speculation for the time being.

    One last thing, Bill left office with a 65% approval rating which rubbed off on Hillary which made her a darling of the Democrats for her run in New York. President Obama has a very long way to go to bring his approval ratings up to what Bill's were. If he remains in the low 40's, he would be a drag on Michelle. But in all things political, time will tell.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Based on what? Seriously. With Hilary Clinton you at least knew she was an attorney and had always been politically active her entire life. What background does Michelle Obama have, other than name recognition?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
