Michelle Obama Leads Illinois Poll for US Senate in 2016 December 7, 2012  7:20 am

obama-michelleCould First Lady Michelle Obama go the route of Hillary Clinton?

It’s only hypothetical this point, but a survey done by Public Policy Polling gives Mrs. Obama the lead over Sen. Mark Kirk 51 to 40 percent, should she choose to challenge Kirk in 2016 for an Illinois senate seat.

From PPP:

If Michelle Obama decided she wanted to follow the Hillary Clinton route once her husband leaves office in 2016 and go to the Senate, she’d have the upper hand on Mark Kirk. She leads him 51/40 in a hypothetical head to head. Kirk’s approval numbers are ok with 34% of voters approving of him to 19% who disapprove. But those numbers are no match for the first lady, who’s seen positively by 60% of voters to 33% with a negative one.

First Lady Michelle Obama has never indicated any interest in seeking political office.

Still, she’s viewed positively by 6 in 10 voters in Illinois.

Kirk, who has been sidelined from Capitol Hill for nearly a year since suffering a debilitating stroke,  has a 34 percent approval and 19 percent disapproval rating.

Just imagine how many bills affecting what we eat and drink she could propose.

More craziness from the under-educated, under-informed, self-indulgent x-% of the twice-voted public, thanks to BHObama, George Soros and the other corrupt (officials) in and out of government.

In answer to your headline, absolutely. Another accomplished, professional woman who put her life on hold, though being first lady does have its own opportunities. I might not vote for her but she'd certainly bring as much to the table as any other candidate.
