Democrats secretly wish Michelle Obama would get involved in the 2020 election.

The former First Lady is the one figure other than her husband who could unite the party heading into the Presidential race.

And now you won’t believe what Michelle Obama just announced about her 2020 plans.

CBS “This Morning” anchor Gayle King interviewed Michelle Obama at the ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans.

King chatted with Obama about the state of the 2020 Democrat Presidential primary and her plans for the race.

Obama told King that she and Barack decided that “our primary focus is letting the primary process play out because it’s very early.”

The former First Lady emphatically stated that neither she nor former President Obama would endorse a candidate in the primary.

“I mean that’s one of the things that we learned in the campaign. It is early,” Michelle Obama exclaimed.

“It’s like trying to figure out who is going to win the World Series on the first seven games, I mean that’s where we are right now. It is so early and things will change.”

“The general election is so important that we have to get behind whoever comes out of that primary, so we’re watching everyone, we’re supporting everyone, we’re giving advice to whoever seeks it,” Obama continued.

This was another blow to former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign.

Biden’s poll numbers collapsed after a disastrous first Democrat Presidential debate performance.

The former Vice President emerged from the rubble trying to rescue his wobbly campaign by latching himself to the mast of Barack Obama’s legacy.

Biden told crowds that Obama trusting him on the issues meant voters could have faith in his commitment to their cause.

But Michelle Obama refusing to endorse Biden kept the cloud hovering over his candidacy.

If Biden claimed that Obama vetted and judged him, what did that say about Biden’s candidacy when after eight years of up-close inspection, Barack and Michelle Obama chose to remain neutral?

Michelle Obama further twisted the knife by refusing to bail out Biden from the controversy over his past praise for pro-segregationist Senators.

“I do not,” Michelle Obama responded when Gayle King asked if she had any comment about Kamala Harris confronting Biden for his past work with pro-segregation Democrats to stop  forced school busing.

“I’ve been doing this rodeo far too long,” Obama added. “It’s like — no comments.”

Biden’s support plunged after the debate because a significant chunk of African American voters abandoned his campaign.

In trying to recover their support, Biden banked on his time as Barack Obama’s Vice President to win back skeptical black voters.

But Michelle Obama made it clear that neither she nor her husband would be throwing Biden a lifeline anytime soon.

Michelle Obama’s refusal to endorse Biden in 2020 means the race will remain wide open with several top tier contenders fighting for frontrunner status.
