Michelle Obama has repeatedly said that she wasn’t interested in getting back into the White House anytime soon, but that’s not stopping her from getting back out on the campaign trail…at least according to new reports out of Washington DC.

Former President Obama endorsed Biden last week soon after Sen. Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race and Biden emerged as the apparent Democratic nominee.
While the former president is still popular with his party, Michelle Obama’s star power among progressives may well eclipse her husband’s.

Biden is the presumptive nominee for the Democrats, but that came at the cost of again irking the supporters of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who has a solid grasp on the younger ears in the party.
