Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama (born January 17, 1964) is an American lawyer, writer, and First Lady of the United States. Michelle Obama is married to the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, and is the first African-American First Lady. Her passionate speech during the first night of the Democratic National Convention on Monday, July 25th, gave her reputation as an elegant, poised speaker.
Although, she hasn’t expressed any desires to run for the presidency, people love her. And, want her to take on the shoes of the Commander-In-Chief. She’s stern, kind, charming, a good parent and a natural orator when it comes to delivering speeches.
So, here’s a list of top qualities and life-events that makes Michelle Obama the best presidential candidate for the year 2020.
1. DNC 2016 Convention Speech.
Michelle Obama brought down the house at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, giving what many political observers are already considering one of the greatest convention speeches — if not speeches, period — of all time. The first lady’s stirring address was all the more impressive coming a week after being plagiarized by Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, at the RNC. Michelle took the high road — a theme of her speech, incidentally — not taking any pot-shots at Melania, nor even mentioning the name of her husband. President Michelle Obama already sounds appeasing!
2. At the Funeral for Dallas Police Officers.
At a memorial for the officers killed in the Dallas ambush, Michelle Obama was stuck holding the hand of America’s former president and court jester in chief George W. Bush — who apparently never learned funeral etiquette 101. Bush danced inappropriately to “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” leaving poor Michelle in the awkward position of trying to suppress laughter onstage at a memorial service. She was seen mouthing the word “seriously?” during the service while he was dancing.
3. Interview with Oprah Winfrey
This 45-minute chat between two of the most powerful women in the world at the White House’s United State of women Summit last June covered plenty of topics. Being a professional woman (“If you do not take control over your time and your life, other people will gobble it up”); dealing with critics (“You don’t have to say anything to the haters”); what men can do to help (“Just be better”); and, of course, her post-White House dreams (“I want to go to Target again!”). President Michelle Obama would be a great feminist!
