That ' s why I'm running for president. Let's build opportunity for every American and restore integrity Announced in early April that he had prostate cancer, but has since had surgery that his staff called A close friend of former President Barack Obama , has told advisers that he envisions a campaign

Why ? He wants to ensure that should he prevail and become the 2020 Democratic nominee , Biden Joe Biden asked his old boss, President Barack Obama , not to endorse him during the primary And the idea Michelle Obama will ever go anywhere near elected politics--let alone presidential politics-- is

Tonight on his Fox News show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Tucker Carlson espoused the theory that Michelle Obama could run for president in 2020, which could be the reason Barack Obama has yet to endorse his former vice president Joe Biden.

Michelle Obama has stated that she doesn't want to run for president because she is not interested in politics, but Carlson said not to bet against her entering the race.

Biden forgets Harris exists

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), another black woman and rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, was standing just a few feet away from him. And she certainly hasn't offered Biden her endorsement."I'm right here!" Harris said, throwing up her arms before breaking out in laughter along with the rest of the debate audience.

Obama is well aware that endorsing Biden now places Democratic voters in a bad position: many respect Obama , and trust his opinion, and might vote for Biden on that alone. That ’ s not only unfair to the other candidates, it’s unfair to the party, and to the country. The US deserves the best possible

Former President Barack Obama has been counseling Democratic candidates on how to win the White House in 2020 . Mr. Axelrod confirmed in an interview that he briefed the gathering, recalling: “They asked me about Obama endorsing .

"Now, last week, the former first lady issued a statement saying that she has no interest in being president," Carlson said. "That's what she claimed. But there are signs that that's not true."

Carlson pointed to the actions of Obama adviser David Axelrod as a harbinger of things to come, claiming Axelrod has run a "scorched earth" campaign against Biden.

"Axelrod has called him a liar, called him a coward, all but accused him of having dementia," Carlson said. "Now, would David Axelrod be doing all that without the consent of the Obamas? No. There's no chance."

Carlson's second point was that Barack Obama did not want Biden to run for president.

"Not only has Obama refused to endorse Biden," Carlson said, "he tried to stop Biden from running in the first place."

Obama must back Biden to restore his legacy

  Obama must back Biden to restore his legacy As it turns out, governing with a pen and phone, instead of the consent of Congress, is a fairly easy way of guaranteeing that your first successor from an opposition party will undo your entire legacy. For better or worse, President Trump pulled out of the Paris climate accords and the Iran Deal. He has moved to reverse the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy (the courts will settle that one), even though he failed to leverage it to gain a legislative win on immigration.

Every Democrat wants Barack Obama ' s 2020 endorsement – but Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are likely the top contenders to get it. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and former Vice President Joe Biden could make the choice especially tricky since they would likely be the top contenders for his backing.

That ’ s especially true given that the party is moving left — an unfavorable trend for Bloomberg given his skepticism of progressive economic policy and past embrace of racist police tactics.

Carlson then showed a short clip of Biden's October interview with Norah O'Donnell on the CBS news program 60 Minutes. When asked if the former president offered to endorse Biden, the candidate said no.

"Nah, we didn't even get there," Biden said. "I asked him not to. He said okay. I think it's better. I think he thinks it's better for me."

Carlson called Biden's response "pathetic."

"Obama hasn't endorsed Joe Biden because he doesn't want to endorse Joe Biden," Carlson said, implying that Obama has other plans for his endorsement.

Books by the Obamas also played into Carlson's theory, specifically the timing of their release.

"Obama's presidential memoir was supposed to come out this year," Carlson said. "Now, its release has been delayed till the middle of the Democratic primaries. In other words, at exactly the moments when Democrats will be thinking deeply about how to beat Donald Trump, America will be talking about the Obamas. Coincidence? Maybe it is."

"Maybe it's also a coincidence that Michelle Obama just released another book last week, one that of course will require her to get on the road and talk to crowds," Carlson added. "Maybe she really isn't interested in joining the race, but that would make her unusual among Democrats in this country."

Carlson seemed to believe Michelle Obama had an outside chance of picking up the Democratic nomination, saying "unexpected things happen far more often than we imagine they do or that we pretend that they do."

"The Democratic Party is ripping itself apart over race and gender and class," Carlson said. "Michelle Obama, let's be honest, is one of the only people who could unite the party's warring factions."
