Michelle Obama said Saturday that she doesn’t plan to run for office, arguing that a focus on the “who” is premature.
Speaking at the 2018 United State of Women Summit in Los Angeles on Saturday, the former first lady suggested she is not unlike Hillary Clinton, who ran unsuccessfully as the Democratic candidate in the 2016 election.
“When I hear people say, ‘You run. … we still didn’t get ‘Yes, We Can.’ Until we get that right, it doesn’t matter who runs,” Obama said, making reference to a campaign slogan espoused by her husband, former President Barack Obama. “I don’t think I’m any different from Hillary. We’ve got a lot of work to do before we’re focused on the who. Because we’re the who. We’re the answer to our own problems and its not finding the one great person to save us from ourselves. It’s us.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“I’m concerned about us women, on how we think about ourselves and each other,” Obama said while speaking to “Blackish” star [Tracee Ellis Ross], according to Deadline. “What is going on in our heads where we let that [President Trump’s election] happen? So I do wonder what are young girls dreaming about, when the most qualified person running was a woman and look what we did instead. That said something about where we’re at. If we as women are still suspicious about each other, if we still have this crazy bar for each other that we don’t have for men — if we’re not comfortable with the notion that we can have a woman for president, compared to what? We need to have that conversation.”
