    Tongues are wagging in Chicago that First Lady Michelle Obama is warming up for a run for the U.S. Senate in 2016 when Republican Senator Mark Kirk is up for re-election.

    She has big asspirations.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    If Michelle does run for office at some point, it probably won't be in 2016.

    The difference between her situation and Hillary's in 2000 is this-in 2016, Sasha will still be a teenager. Chelsea was pretty much grown up and in college when Bill left office. If I were Sasha (or Malia, for that matter), I'd want some peace for a few years with neither of my parent in public office with all the media attention that goes along with it-not that they will ever be free of it, but if neither parent is in office for a few years, it's not quite as intense as it would be otherwise.

    That and her previously-undetected Jewish ancestry.

    And Noon, I don't think she's that selfless by any stretch, however if she does conclude she can't win in 2016 and sits it out, I expect we'd hear something like that as a self-serving excuse that would let her off the hook while still leaving her future options open.
