Doug Schoen is a Democratic analyst and a FOX News contributor. He suggests that the only Democrat who could win the election in 2020 is Michelle Obama.
He writes at The Hill:
Michelle Obama outshines all Democratic prospects for 2020
It cannot be overstated how eagerly the Democrats want to take back the White House in 2020.
The Democrats face many obstacles in this effort, but the greatest threat is the fierce internal divisions within the party.
Two of the leading prospective presidential candidates, Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), have begun national fundraising operations. Former Vice President Joe Biden has been busy building a national email list to communicate directly with his supporters, and Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) has already announced his presidential candidacy.
The only person I can see accomplishing this would be none other than the party’s most popular political figure: Michelle Obama.
Let me be clear: This is not an endorsement. I have been, and still am, critical of Barack Obama’s presidency. Michelle Obama would not be my candidate, and I do not agree with many of the positions I believe she would advance. But as an analyst, Michelle Obama is clearly the Democrats’ best chance to reunite the party and win back the White House in 2020.
Michelle Obama has repeatedly stated that she’ll never run for office. She seems to enjoy the life of leisure too much for such a job, anyway.
