Michelle Obama for president … someday?

Too soon, too soon, of course.

After observing close-up the kind of headwinds her husband has met in Washington, D.C., and beyond, there is absolutely no indication that first lady Michelle Obama is looking to place her own name on any ballot. She has, in fact, said the opposite, although in his just-released book, Michelle Obama: A Life, veteran journalist Peter Slevin reports that she has always been a full partner in her husband’s political career. But it is significant that former first lady, U.S. Sen. and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has hired Michelle Obama’s former communications chief as Clinton enters her bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

With approval ratings that have always surpassed her husband’s and ovations over everything from her Let’s Move! campaign to her Tonight Show dance-offs with host Jimmy Fallon, Obama’s image is one to envy and emulate.

According to reports, Clinton plans to go small in her campaign this time around, emphasizing personality and connection with voters.
