At least she’ll definitely have a job on Wednesday


Next TV star? Eyed as the next daytime talk show host, TV executives have acknowledged being at the ready to scoop up First Lady Michelle Obama should she not return to the White House after Tuesday

MOOSE TALK

Her husband could be out of a job in 48 hours, but Michelle Obama could step into a new career as a chat show hosts.

TV executives believe the First Lady would be a natural to become a talk show host.

She has even been compared to Oprah Winfrey, the queen of chat show hosts and one of the most recognisable names in show business.

 

‘Personally I would like to see her in the White House,’ said Hilary Estey McLoughlin., president of syndication company behind the Ellen DeGeneres show.

‘But if she were not going to be in the White House, I’d love to see her as the host of a show. She’s amazing.’

 

And former CNN president Jon Klein agreed that the First Lady would be snapped up by TV chiefs if her husband does not win a second term in office.

‘Daytime syndicators are desperate for a new voice and she is tailor made for it, ‘ he told TV Guide magazine.

    Have you ever seen a lefty show that didn’t have to have the herd mentality, shows like The View? They do this because their arguments can’t stand up when challenged by free thinking conservatives such as Sarah Palin. They have to attack character and interrupt and lie. They are all just another version of Jerry Springer at heart with no soul. Who do you think they would use to round out the herd?

    What a classy ex-first lady she’ll become. In fairness though, it’s not as if she can practice law anymore what with her having to surrender her license for reasons which still are murky. So, it’s either a talk show or have someone write a book for her just like hubby did.

    Just came back from an errand while listening to a Satellite radio program that originates at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland

    And the ultralib lady DJ is doing the ol’ “Won’t you be glad when all this campaigning is over” routine as opposed to “Aren’t you excited about Obama’s chances; be sure to get out and vote.”

    Who knows — maybe I’m grasping at straws or maybe I’m reading the tea leaves. All I know is that this lady who would normally gush like a fountain at Caesar’s Palace at the rumor of a reunion of the Bobby Fuller Four, seemed mighty unenthused about the election

    She would bide her time as host -until cancelled, while waiting to get her chance to run in 2016 or prop up Barry for his chance at a second term.
