Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing opened up a seat on the Supreme Court.
Everyone now wants to know who will replace her.
And now Michelle Obama could replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg if this one thing happens.
Joe Biden is under pressure to name his list of potential replacements for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Biden demanded that Republicans leave the seat open until after the election.
President Trump – as well as many Americans – is insisting that Biden reveal who he would nominate if the seat stayed open and Biden won the election.
In 2016 President Trump put out a short list of potential Supreme Court nominees which proved to the public he was serious about nominating qualified and conservative judges.
That political masterstroke proved key to his victory.
There is one name that Joe Biden could put forth that would energize the Democrat base like none other.
And that is former First Lady Michelle Obama.
Emerson College American Studies professor Dr. Roger House authored an op-ed on The Hill explaining why Obama made the most sense of any potential nominee.
“What it means is that the Biden campaign cannot simply propose to nominate a woman of traditional qualifications for the court. If it is to make history, then it must spotlight a woman who embodies the dream of the civil rights movement. That person is former first lady Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama,” Dr. House stated.
Michelle Obama attended Harvard Law School and worked at a Chicago law firm where she met Barack Obama.
Dr. House claimed that Biden announcing he would nominate Michelle Obama would put pressure on vulnerable Senate Republicans running for re-election to announce how they would handle a Michelle Obama Supreme Court nomination.
“The Biden campaign must appreciate that proposing Michelle Obama for the Supreme Court would ignite enthusiasm in the Black community and among suburban women. Moreover, it would put pressure on vulnerable Republican senators who might be solicited to support yet another problematic Trump nominee to the Supreme Court. That group would include the incumbent Republican Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) and Steve Daines (R-Mont.). Each of them would have to think twice before inciting the wrath of Black and suburban women voters in their states,” Dr. House added.
Joe Biden struggles to generate enthusiasm among traditional Democrat voting constituencies like Hispanics and black men.
Naming Michelle Obama as his Supreme Court nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg could change that dynamic.
Joe Biden so far has refused to name any potential Supreme Court nominees.
Would he change that strategy if Michelle Obama agreed to sit on the Supreme Court?
