The Vice Presidential pick is not a choice Joe Biden can afford to get wrong. This is a choice that will make or break his campaign.
And this is not an election the Democrats can afford to lose.
Joe Biden needs someone who is a unifying figure with rock star status. A powerful woman who can bring people together.
We believe that woman is Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama is one of the most admired women in America. And Biden already committed to putting a woman on the ballot back in March.
She has said in the past that she is not planning on running, but in light of the current national crisis we hope that she will reconsider.
On the choice of Michelle Obama, Biden has even said, "I'd take her in a heartbeat. She's brilliant. She knows the way around. She is a really fine woman. The Obamas are great friends."
Michelle Obama was the most admired woman in America in 2018 and 2019, according to Gallup. Her memoir -- "Becoming" -- sold more than 10 million copies. She founded a non-partisan group aimed at increasing voter registration that made the news when she endorsed Democratic legislation aimed at early voting and vote-by-mail in the midst of the coronavirus crisis. And of course, she already has 8 years of experience in the White House.
CNN has said, "There is no single person in America Biden could pick as his VP that would increase his chances of victory more than Michelle Obama. Period."
And if you don't believe us, watch her Dear Class of 2020 speech. She speaks out as a compelling voice of justice in a time of chaos. "If any of you are confused, or scared, or angry—or just plain overwhelmed—I just want you to know that you aren’t alone."
This is the voice America needs to hear. This is the person Joe Biden needs at his side. This is who will help Joe Biden defeat Trump this November.
