Floating FLOTUSes

I know I mentioned this before, but on this Presidents' Day I have to repeat it again, if only because it's so ridiculous - there are Democrats who are talking about running Michelle Obama for President in 2020.   
Don't get me wrong, I love the woman.  But again - who in the Democratic Party had the spectacularly dumb idea to run Mrs. Obama on the grounds that she's qualified as a result of having been First Lady?  Fortunately, Mrs. Obama is not interested. 
This is no doubt just another ploy on the part of the Democratic Party to return a popular former First Couple to the White House to circumvent the Twenty-Second Amendment, which limits a President to two terms, in the absence of any credible presidential possibilities.  Well, at least in the absence of any credible presidential possibilities that anyone wants to bother with (*cough cough*, Martin O'Malley, *cough cough*).  Why do you think the Democrats ran Hillary Clinton?
Heck, if it's an ex-First Lady you want at the top of your presidential ticket, Democrats, you have a third choice!  
Rosalynn Carter in 2020! 
Of course, if the Democrats feel they need someone younger, they can always go for this Mrs. Carter!
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter for President! Think about it - she can put her husband in charge of the National Endowment of the Arts!
Oh God, the Democrats can't go the way of the Whigs soon enough!
