Many people on the left are worried about Joe Biden’s chances in November and they should be.
As a result, they think Michelle Obama is going to ride in and save them. So far, she has shown no interest in the job, so they are trying to draft her.
A liberal organization was just formed to push this effort.
Democrat Operatives Launch ‘Committee to Draft Michelle Obama’ for VP
A newly-launched committee called “Draft Michelle Obama” is pushing for Joe Biden, the apparent Democrat presidential nominee, to select the former first lady as his running mate.
“Joe Biden has said he would choose Michelle Obama as his running mate ‘in a heartbeat.’ The aim of this campaign is to build on the substantial grassroots support for a potential Michelle Obama candidacy and help garner media attention for a vice-presidential nominee who has the power to beat Donald Trump,” the group said in a statement released Monday.
The statement adds: “The Committee to Draft Michelle Obama firmly believes that Ms. Obama will not only benefit the Democratic ticket this November but also help lead this country to be more just and caring. However strongly we support Ms. Obama as Vice President Biden’s running mate, we will transfer our resolve to whoever joins the ticket to defeat the most dangerous incumbent in the history of our nation.”
The group, which filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) in late April, is supported by Democratic fundraisers Nadine Hack and Mack Wilbourn, spokesperson Drew Zuckerman told The Hill.
Michelle Obama is also in the news because she has a new documentary out on Netflix, and apparently she expresses anger over black people who don’t vote:

Wow from @MichelleObama: “So the day I left the White House and I write about how painful it was to sit on that [inauguration] stage. A lot of our folks didn’t vote. It was almost like a slap in the face.”

She is not going to save Democrats in this election.
They better get used to that idea.
