Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream, and so do I. Actually, my dream came to me last night, while I was sleeping off an ice cream sundae. But a dream is a dream, and my dream is that one day, we consider making Michelle Obama President of the United States. She probably won’t get elected, but she’d pull out black support unlike any other candidate in American history. No disrespect to Barack, but Michelle might make a better commander-in-chief. Here are just a few reasons why:
1) She’s just as smart as her husband:Barack Obama went to an Ivy League school, and so did Michelle. Barack is a highly trained attorney, and so is Michelle. In fact, Michelle actually mentored Barack when he first got his job at Sidley Austin, a fancy law firm in Chicago. I’m sure she can go toe-to-toe with him in any debate.
2) It’s about time we let a woman lead our country. Given that women are now the majority of the American workforce, it is about time for us to let a woman run the country. Who knows? Maybe choosing the best person for the job without discriminating based on gender will actually make us better off in the end.
