Jeffrey Dunetz at The Lid uncovered this week that Michelle Obama, in 2007 heavily implied that Bill Clinton’s cheating on Hillary meant that she wasn’t fit to be President of the United States.
As the saying goes politics makes strange bedfellows and there is nothing more true in this strange political year. This year Michelle Obama is campaigning for Hillary Clinton, but in Aug. 2007 she said Hillary wasn’t qualified because of Bubba’s infidelity. Of course she was more political that that but her meaning was clear.
For example at a Chicago Women for Obama rally she said:
One of the things the important aspects of this race is role modeling what good families should look like and my view is that if you can’t run your own house you certainly can’t run the White House –can’t do it (see video below)
She said something similar in Iowa a few weeks prior,
When the Obama campaign was confronted by the press about Michelle’s Iowa statement the campaign backed off saying she was talking abut her own family. But the more logical view is that Michelle Obama was taking on the Clintons over Hillary’s inability to stop Bill’s indiscretions.
