It cannot be overstated how eagerly the Democrats want to take back the White House in 2020 and only one person can accomplish this for them…
Douglas Schoen is a Democratic analyst and a FOX News contributor, and has been one of the most influential Democratic campaign consultants for over thirty years.
According to his bio, his political clients include New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Indiana Governor Evan Bayh, and his corporate clients include AOL Time Warner, Procter & Gamble and AT&T. Internationally, he has worked for the heads of states of over 15 countries, including British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, and three Israeli Prime Ministers.
Chances are when Schoen makes a prediction it’s one you can take to the bank, and he is suggesting that the only Democrat who could win the 2020 election against President Donald Trump is Michelle Obama.

It cannot be overstated how eagerly the Democrats want to take back the White House in 2020.
The Democrats face many obstacles in this effort, but the greatest threat is the fierce internal divisions within the party.
The Democratic Party does not just need a new leader, but a new policy agenda that is aimed at growing our economy, promoting traditional party values and doing more than resisting President Trump at every step.
Two of the leading prospective presidential candidates, Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), have begun national fundraising operations. Former Vice President Joe Biden has been busy building a national email list to communicate directly with his supporters, and Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) has already announced his presidential candidacy.
The only person I can see accomplishing this would be none other than the party’s most popular political figure: Michelle Obama.
Further, in plain terms, Michelle Obama would be a far superior candidate to Hillary Clinton. I opposed Hillary Clinton because she faced ethical issues that could very well have initiated a constitutional crisis had she been elected. Michelle Obama does not face such controversy.
Let me be clear: This is not an endorsement. I have been, and still am, critical of Barack Obama’s presidency. Michelle Obama would not be my candidate, and I do not agree with many of the positions I believe she would advance. But as an analyst, Michelle Obama is clearly the Democrats’ best chance to reunite the party and win back the White House in 2020.
Michelle Obama has repeatedly stated that she’ll never run for office. She seems to enjoy the life of leisure too much for such a job, anyway.
I hate to say it, but I agree with Schoen, if Michelle Obama decides to run for president – the Obama’s will be back in the White House.
If that happens – all I can say is, hell hath no furry like an angry black woman living in a house that ‘slaves built.’
