Michelle Obama’s name came up for one job that is bad news for Donald Trump
The Democrats appear headed toward a brokered convention to decide their party’s Presidential nominee.
That messy scenario has Democrats in a panic that they may not be able to unite the party in time for November to take on Donald Trump.
And now Michelle Obama’s name came up for one job that is bad news for Donald Trump.
Former Vice President Joe Biden looks set to revitalize his campaign with a win in the South Carolina primary.
That could set him up for a big win on Super Tuesday, which would narrow the field to a contest between Biden and frontrunner Bernie Sanders.
Neither candidate is expected to end the primary season with enough delegates to clinch the nomination on the first ballot.
That means the super delegates – party establishment figures who aren’t bound by the results of their state’s primary or caucus – would cast the deciding votes on the second ballot.
Few Democrat elites want to turn the party’s fortunes over to Sanders and Joe Biden made an explicit pitch of a “dream” unity ticket at an even in South Carolina where he was asked about naming Michelle Obama as his Vice President.
Voter asks Biden if he’ll pick Michelle Obama as his running mate.
Loudest cheers of the event.

Biden said he would put the former First Lady on the ticket if she would accept the position.
The promise of a “Biden-Obama” dream ticket to replicate the successful dynamic of the 2008 and 2012 victories could be the excuse Democrat Party super delegates need to hand the nomination to Biden on the second ballot even if Sanders comes to the convention with more delegates.
