It would give Barack Obama a 4th term considering he's now in his 3rd term with Joe Biden at the helm.

Ted Cruz Says Dems Will ‘Parachute’ In Michelle Obama, ‘Jettison’ Joe Biden

Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz predicted Monday that the Democratic Party will replace President Joe Biden with former First Lady Michelle Obama in the 2024 presidential election.
 
“Here’s the scenario that I think is perhaps the most likely and most dangerous,” Cruz said on his “Verdict with Ted Cruz” podcast. “In August of 2024, the Democrat kingmakers jettison Joe Biden and parachute in Michelle Obama.”
 
Cruz explained that by running Michelle Obama as the party’s candidate, the Democrats could “avoid the problems” of having to choose a candidate among political figures like Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, Vice President Kamala Harris and California Gov. Gavin Newsom. (RELATED: Biden Says Michelle Obama Was Vice President During Speech)
 
“Barack Obama is already running the Biden administration,” Cruz said. “I think he is already the puppet master, behind this Biden White House, I don’t think Joe Biden is the decision maker. And so, when I see the media turning on Joe Biden right now, I think the odds of Michelle Obama parachuting in in August of 2024 have risen dramatically.”
 
The senator believes Michelle Obama will unify Democratic Party by positioning her prospective candidacy as “the Obamas saving the day.” He said that other Democrat contenders will be expected to “fight it out next time” when they are all “on the same level.”
 
Cruz is not the first to speculate that Michelle Obama may run for president. Podcaster Joe Rogan claimed Michelle Obama could beat former President Donald Trump in the 2024 election if she decides to run for office.
 
Despite claiming Biden is “doing a great job,” Michelle Obama did not endorse the sitting president when asked in November 2022 if he should run for a second term.

Except she isn’t much more popular than Harris is.

If Biden isn't on the ticket she'll pick up his votes.

She hates the White House. How could she possibly do the job?

Hubby forced her to do it! I cannot think of any other reason!

I just don’t see it.  I think Cruz is going extreme to get attention to his podcast.  She has never held office and her only political connection is her husband. Trump had years as a businessman and he was different, more of a one off. Even Obama had little experience but he was a Senator.

Yes. I just don’t see it at all. She hasn’t even been in the news in years in any substantial way. It’s possible Cruz is thinking about retiring from the senate. He’s doing a podcast which isn’t gaining a large audience. He used to always be in the news, but now he’s not doing much. We hear much more about other senators. I searched on Michelle Obama and every news article about her is about his podcast.

I found two articles about Michelle. She hated her husband for ten years?  Why?

And this from 2021 where she is moving toward retirement.  “Building up their foundation” is just what it says, making as much money as conceivably possible before she quits. That isn’t a woman looking for politics.  Politics may be what nearly destroyed their marriage.
