Who's on First? Or Second for that Matter?

Who’s on First? Or Second for that Matter?

April 21, 2020 – The unusual circumstances in the run-up to our presidential election in November certainly have caused this to be one of the most unusual processes ever. On the one side of the equation is perhaps the most solidly positioned candidate running as an incumbent. On the other is a candidate whose competence has been questioned in some quarters, as is his age and state of mind.

It is clear that former Vice President Joe Biden is the Democrat candidate for president in spite of any misgivings expressed. For months, the Democrats nationwide have been banging the drum for a person of color (any color but however you define Caucasian hue) with lady parts (real or otherwise faked) to run Biden as a vice presidential candidate.

Seeping up to the top of the crowd seems to be Michelle Obama. This person’s credentials for public office are thin at best if one is generous, and by reputation non-existent when you look at the school and work record produced prior.

None of that will matter if the mainstream media hits a Deep State softball to a far outfield corner and the mainstream media just runs for all their worth. After all, isn’t that how we got Ol’ Joe Biden at the top of the Democrat heap?

Earlier this year, January 31, International Business Times’   headlined her story: 

But then she went on to drop this to head up her story which is indicative of the state of the VP speculation abounding.


  • Michelle Obama could become the next vice president
  • Joe Biden wants Michelle Obama to be his vice president
  • Michelle Obama won’t run for president

And since Obama is involved with Netflix, from Media Entertainment Arts WorldWide, we get this:

Although Obama, till now, has not expressed a desire to run for a political position, experts believe that her involvement could boost Biden’s chances of winning the 2020 presidential elections. …

‘Michelle Obama has shown no interest in elective office but she would be a very effective choice if she were willing,’ Dr Stephen J Farnsworth, Professor of Political Science, University of Mary Washington told MEA Worldwide. ‘She was very popular with the public and was an effective campaigner on behalf of her husband.’

On April 11, Jon Levine of the NY Post was already laying odds on an Obama pick, naming what is probably the most critical consideration brought to the decision:

Biden, at age 77, would be the oldest president ever elected should he triumph in November, making the vice president pick more important than ever.

‘I think he’s aware that he might be picking the next president. I think people are going to be more aware of that, too,’ Democratic strategist James Carville told The Post.

Over a month ago, John Fund in National Review Online noted the results of polling:

A poll last month by Stanford’s Hoover Institution in conjunction with the Bill Lane Center for the American West and YouGov asked 1,507 registered voters in California whom they wanted as a vice-presidential nominee.

In Monday’s interview, Biden said his search for a running mate was continuing and reiterated his pledge to select a woman, but declined to commit to selecting a woman of colour in the role.

From so many reports since those college essay years, as well as video evidence, one can conclude that Michelle Obama was not thrilled to be in that spotlight, never mind the written and spoken view of this country and inhabitants attributed to this person. It’s very difficult to imagine that in any way is Obama interested in leaving that rather well financed existence these days for the challenges of an executive position of the United States Government.

To end this exercise with a satisfactory conclusion is virtually impossible. As it stands now, it’s anyone’s guess who will be on the Democrat ticket. There are those who believe Joe Biden should be replaced, though there is no observable move to do so. And further, there is no single consensus pick to serve as vice president.

As for who’ll be in second spot?

Stay tuned. Only time will tell if the DS has had its say in the matter. Wait for the swing of the bat. Let’s see who they bring home.  The picture is bound to become more clear as we lope toward November.

And pray. Pray for your country and her faithful citizens, for your fearless president, and especially for a safe and honest election in November.

And for heaven’s sake, let’s PLAY BALL!
