In any war, there are two tremendous tasks. That of the combat troops is to fight the enemy. That of the supply troops is to furnish all the material to insure victory. The faster and farther the combat troops advance against the foe, the greater becomes the battle of supply. EISENHOWER

Michelle Obama vs Trump.

Michelle Obama: 'I will not run for president'
http://www.cnn.com/2016/03/16/politics/michelle-obama-president-sxsw/

"No, no," he said at a town hall event in Louisiana in January. "No, no, no. No, no. Let me tell ya, there are three things that are certain in life: death, taxes and Michelle is not running for president. That, I can tell you."

If Michelle Obama follows the Hillary Clinton template ... she'll be the Dem nominee for president in 2032.

Now, she is someone that would be hard to run against.  She might very well be the silver bullet the democrats need to shoot the big bad wolf (of wall street).

True enough, but she's someone who hasn't, I believe, blotted her copybook and is liked and admired by many.  Unlike Billary.  She could perhaps find the time to crap the bed down the road, but I doubt it.

I was referring to the President Elect ;)

I suspect there will be tremendous pressure on her to run.  Despite her protests.  She's squeaky clean, well spoken and would be a far better choice to be the first Woman President.

I guess we can scratch First Lady Melania off the list as she was not born in the U.S.

The cynic in me thinks even over that timeframe, she may not have shaken the "Hillary stink" off her  >:D

That might actually force him to renounce his Canadian citizenship though. So still a win for us. You have to look for the silver linings George.

Can we just take a breather for a bit? Do we really need a four year thread?

The democrats are going to tear themselves apart and won't have a viable candidate for almost a couple of years.

Instead of 'US Election 2020' how about Donald Trump - POTUS, because that's all this thread is going to be about for a long time.

And on that note, how about we just give him a chance instead of the gotcha media approach (which didn't work for the media anyway).

Unlike Potato Head, Trump knows how to surround himself with professionals and experts. It's what business people do to succeed.

Go have a beer, or two, and forget about the US election for a bit.
Corruption in politics doesn't scare me.
What scares me is how comfortable people are doing nothing about it.
