Trying to OutHilary, Hilary?

Just so you won’t have a lack of political possibilities to worry about, I am pleased to offer another  such possibility. The good thing is that this one should be a few years in the future, I think.

The first lady has been somewhat prominent in the news of late. One day, she’s photographed on the Gulf Coast, giving a thumbs up ands encouraging people to vacation at the Gulf. There is plenty of unspoiled beach available and it would be  a great to support the folks in the region. So, where is  the  Obama family  taking its  upcoming mini-vacation? Why, glad you asked. The answer is Maine. Perhaps he has not played any of the 150 golf courses in that great state and just has a hankering to do so. 

Her other high-profile appearance this week was  at the NAACP convention. You know, the event at which the “Tea  Party” was deemed to be a racist organization and then the next day, it wasn’t ? Wondering what she had to say?

Well, the first lady was the keynote speaker at the Kansas City, MO event and she seemed just a bit disgruntled. She spoke of crumbling schools, of the high rate of imprisonment of young black Americans and that the founders would agree that the work was not done. Which founders, not the country’s, but the NAACP’s. I shall just list the names and add that it would be quite enlightening to look them up. They were Mary White Ovington, Henry Moskowitz and William English Walling. She went to say that it was not time  to rest on our laurels but  rather to increase our intensity.

Thinking  about these events , especially the second made me  wonder if there are some aspirations in Mrs Obama’s future, political aspirations to be precise. Shucks, she could very well be involved in  setting policy already, taking  a page from Hilary’s playbook. So, in 2 and 1/2 years or 6 and 1/2 years or even 10 and 1/2 years when the President  leaves office, I just wonder if another Obama will be entering the  political arena. It will be  a long-term watch but could prove interesting.

  1. The Clinton’s could be getting ready to run against Barack Obama come 2012. As you know when we get one of the Clinton’s it = 2
    Hope I’m wrong, we need a change in the White House and not a democrat as they have done enough damage to America.
