The fact that she has been the first lady would probably give her a lot of influence in the Senate. And because Senators don’t have term limits, we could be talking many more years of an Obama. That’s a scary thought.
The Democratic National Committee is feeding excited speculation that first lady Michelle Obama will follow Hillary Rodham Clinton from the East Wing to the Senate.
Following on the heels of her well-received Democratic convention speech, the DNC has just printed up Obama bumper stickers and is offering them to supporters of Clinton for a $10 donation.
Ever since that speech, dubbed “stunning” by the Los Angeles Times,speculation has been high in Illinois that the popular native daughter would run for the Senate or other office.
