Michelle Obama for Senate in 2016?
TheDC ^ | January 14, 2012 | Jeff Poor

In November 2016, Illinois voters will go to the polls to decide who they want to occupy the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Republican Sen. Mark Kirk. And although it is a long way off, could one of the names on the ticket be first lady Michelle Obama?

At the end of this weekend’s broadcast of “The McLaughlin Group,” show host John McLaughlin made that bold prediction, saying a Michelle Obama run for the seat her husband won in 2004 would happen.

“Michelle Obama will run for the United States Senate in 2016 and she will be thereby mimicking, if that’s not the right word [then] duplicating the career of Hillary Clinton,” McLaughlin said.

And her qualifications are? Being FLOTUS? I don’t think so. Of course I’m not an Illinois voter. Qualified or not, they’d probably love her.

What is this a replay of the Clintons? What makes thee people think they are qualified for these positions? They should all be in jail.

Not for nuthin' but Hillary was even less qualified when she became the NY Senator. At least Chewbacca has the extra 10 affirmative action points to get her in.

If this is true and she's considering it, she'll be a lock in Illinois.

I have a feeling Shelly and Hussein are going to be fleeing the country to some faraway sanctuary location owned by Soros long before 2016.

You’re right. She’s got it in the bag. Some people just shouldn’t be allowed to vote. THEY are not qualified to do that.

B.S. on that Senate thing. If her old man O-Hole wins in November, which very unfortunatly I think is going to happen, Moochie is going to run for Prez in 2016. The NEW BLACK DYNASTY. Mmmmmmm, Mmmmmm,Mmmmm. We WHITEYS are going to be punished big time. Hang on to your hats, and keep buying lots of those “sporting goods”.

Be fair. Caligula appointed the entire horse not just the east end of the horse when it was heading west!

I hope that, in 2014, Sen. Durbin will retire and be replaced by Rep. Roskam. I hope that, in 2016, Rep. Hultgren will defeat Sen. Kirk, in the primary.

Good luck with that. Durbin wants to be Democrat Leader (even if he has to battle to the death with Chuckie Schumer). The Combine will protect the execrable Kirk from any Republican who tries to challenge him and they will be destroyed. Of course, by 2016, he may become a Democrat anyway. He should stop insulting our intelligence and make the switch as soon as possible.

Me too. I also hope to the be next lotto millionaire. I don't know which odds are worse.

Durbin is never gonna retire. If we can't ever beat him then he'll die a Senator like Bryd and Kennedy.

As for the subject of this thread, please forgive me my esteemed RINO hunters but if then former First "Lady" Obama is the rat Senate nominee in 2016 I will camp outside my polling place the night before so I can be sure I'll be the first one in the door to vote for Kirk in the combine's November primary. I cannot suffer having the Wookie Chewbacca as my Senator, I'd rather have Carol Mosely-Fraud, Michael Moore or even Kim Jong-un.

John McLaughlin deserves to get genital warts for even suggesting this.
