To say that the democratic party is in a state of disrepair would put you in the running for the most profound understatement of the year. In fact, the entire progressive posse is practically coming apart at the seams.
One of the more obvious reasons for this lack of civility among the democrats are the two dozen candidates currently cannibalizing each other on the campaign trail. The far, far left is attempting to paint the party’s centrist wing as old “fuddy duddies” whose ideologies are no longer relevant to the modern nation. Of course, this outlook has only been galvanized by the emergence of Joe Biden as a frontrunner in the race, with his lengthy senatorial career coming under heavy fire in recent weeks.
Concerns over the caliber of candidates on the democratic dais for 2020 have been prevalent, offering up the possibility of yet another leftist entering the race as the “end-all, be-all” candidate. Some believe it could be yet another attempt by Hillary Clinton to seize the West Wing, while others have intimated that a run by Michelle Obama would be a fearsome revelation.
Michelle Obama certainly didn’t do anything to dispel that idea this weekend.
Six Democratic presidential candidates took the stage at the Essence Festival on Saturday, but it was a former inhabitant of the White House who got a rock star’s welcome — regardless of her tendency to deflect questions on the 2020 election.
Former first lady Michelle Obama refused to comment on the Kamala Harris-Joe Biden “dust up,” as moderator Gayle King called it, Saturday night, but Obama did reiterate a lot of her opinions surrounding the current political climate with a lot of color and to a lot of applause.
Then came a curious redirection regarding endorsements.
The former first lady also said she and her husband would not be endorsing any candidate from the crowded field, saying they would support whomever wins the primary.
“Barack and I are going to support whoever wins the primary, so … our primary focus is letting the primary process play out, because it’s very early,” she said. “I mean, that’s one of the things that we learned in the campaign. It is early; it’s like trying to figure out who’s winning the World Series on the first seven games. I mean that’s where we are right now, it is so early.”
Joe Biden, who boldly and swiftly took the reins as the democratic frontrunner upon his entrance to the 2020 race, has been slipping as of late with several polls now showing a statistical three-way tie between himself, Kamala Harris, and Liz Warren.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
