Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden this week reaffirmed his desire to have former first lady Michelle Obama be his running mate. “I sure would like Michelle [Obama] to be the vice president,” Biden said Tuesday at a campaign stop in Muscatine, Iowa. The comment came after the former vice president was asked if he would consider nominating former President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court. “Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it. He’d be a great Supreme Court justice,” Biden responded.(Snip) Biden responded: “They’re both incredibly qualified people and they’re such decent, honorable people.” The pairing would be a first

Michelle doesnt play second fiddle to anyone. I cant picture her taking orders from Biden. Being VP would be a downgrade after occupying the White House for 8 years.

No, she would be expected to at least show up and preside over the senate. That would be asking too much.

Bite Me cannot stand on his own-- he is constantly trying to name-drop the Nobamas and ride on their coat tails. So much corruption and influence peddling issues surround the man who cannot even keep his stump speeches straight-- Could it be that virtually all of the DEFLECTION campaign against Mr. Trump is to keep from digging into the corruption of this man, and by extension, HOW MANY other things could be looked into and WHERE and HOW FAR would it go? Lots of ROTTEN stuff being covered for, and people want to know-- this whole CHARADE is going to fall apart, and the Nobamas are not going to be taken down by associating with ex VP Biden

Don't be too critical, he knows he won't serve his full term, and definitely not a 2nd. Thus, Michelle would ascend from VP to POTUS, simply by being on the ticket with Joe.

I wish I had dated the first comment I made about the upcoming Bide/Obama ticket. 1. Mooch does not HAVE TO PRIMARY WITH ANYBODY. 2. Mooch WILL play second fiddle BECAUSE Joe goes into history as a president. Joe has "health issues and resigns. BINGO The FIRST BLACK WOMAN PRESIDENT. Eat that Hillary. They don't like her any more than we do. 3. The scary part is it could work just on the novelty value. Might be a way to get Joe past the Bernie bros.

Four in five women could be missing out on higher wages due to not negotiating pay when applying for jobs, and half of female employees think they are being underpaid, a study has found. The research, conducted by employment law specialists Slater and Gordon, found 70 per cent of those women who ask for more money from their employers receive a proportion or all of the amount they ask for. This contradicts previous studies which have found that when women ask for a pay rise they are less likely to get one than men. Campaigners argue employers often victimise women who complain about equal pay.
