Joe Biden said Tuesday that former first lady Michelle Obama would make a great vice president, and that he would consider appointing Barack Obama to the Supreme Court.
He didn’t exactly say he wanted her to be his vice president, but the vice president.
Which, putting the pandering aside, begs the question, In what sense is Michelle Obama the least bit qualified to be president or vice president?
Biden called her “incredibly qualified.” No, she’s not.
But she’d make a good Senate or gubernatorial candidate if she decided to run. And then, who knows?
Even ambition-filled Hillary made a pit stop in the Senate before attempting to ride into the Oval Office.
Biden’s exchange with a voter, according to the Washington Examiner:
“Would you consider appointing Obama for the Supreme Court?” a man in the crowd asked the former vice president on Tuesday.
“Yeah, I would, and I don’t think he’d do it. He’d be a great Supreme Court justice,” Biden, 77, responded.
“Second question is: Which Obama?” the man said as the room reacted with awes and applause.
“Well, I sure would like Michelle to be the vice president,” Biden said and laughed. “They’re both incredibly qualified people, I mean, and they’re such decent, honorable people.”
