Obama To Replace Biden As 2024 Presidential Nominee?

Not Barack, obviously. Michelle!
The excerpt from the piece below from the Telegraph in the UK reads like gossip (plus, I’m weary of believing or caring what a British paper thinks about an American election), but I would support the idea regardless. Unlike the horrendous Hillary campaign, Michelle can win. As I’ve already predicted, Joe Biden will not be the nominee come next November. Via Telegraph:
A source says that in conversation with a foreign politician, it emerged that their government assumes Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee in 2024. Joe will pull out before the first primaries; it will be too late for a grassroots candidate to enter the fray; an establishment stooge will be crowned at the convention. And the name of that lucky winner? Michelle Obama. It’s a wild scenario, but if it does happen, please remember that you read it here first.
Mrs. Obama has always polled well. She has published two best-selling books of biography and womanly wisdom. She has served in the White House. She is known by everyone but, unlike Trump, has retained some of the enigma of privacy. She has denied that she has any intention of running for the presidency, but that’s usually a sure-fire sign that someone is interested.
As for the suggestion that her overnight nomination would be too fantastical, too Hollywood – has our sense of the “possible” not been radically expanded by Donald Trump? Mrs. Obama’s opponent would be spending much of the election cycle in court. There is no “normal” anymore in US politics.
