Democrats are pinning all of their hope and dreams on the 2020 presidential election.
They want President Donald Trump to be defeated so badly that they are willing to do anything to ensure it happens.
The thought of him winning again and serving another term as president haunts their nightmares.
They want so much to defeat him that they are literally drafting every and anyone they can to take him on.
And one woman at the center of those dreams has been former first lady Michelle Obama who is thought to be the brightest star of the party.

As Democrats begin their campaign for the party’s 2020 nomination, #Obama is the party’s unrivaled powerbroker. He will be the biggest speaker at the party’s 2020 convention. His wife, #MichelleObama, might be the second biggest. https://t.co/mPhQ7JObDs

Are you planning to vote Trump 2020?
There are some decent Democratic candidates in the lineup of those vying for US Presidency 2020, but when it comes to taking on Trump, there’s one person who in my view, has the best shot. C’mon, @MichelleObama, for the sake of the rest of the world, think about giving it a go.

That is why the news that she gave them this week is going to hit them like a bag of hammers, The Daily Mail reported.
The former First Lady said she wanted to ‘make room’ for younger generations who she and husband former President Barack Obama hope to ’empower’.
She made the announcement while speaking to a sell-out crowd at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, TX.
Obama is currently on a promotional tour across the United States for her book ‘Becoming’ which recounts her childhood and time in the White House.
The autobiography sold 1.4 million copies in its first week, and went on to become the best-selling book of 2018.
Answering online questions at the event on Thursday, a Twitter fan asked what she thought she’d be doing ten years from now.
Someone in the hall’s audience shouted that she would run for president, according to KXAN. Obama shook her head and replied, ‘Nope, nope, nope’.
‘It’s not us occupying the same seats, it’s making room,’ she said, before going on to describe how she would work with her husband to empower the ‘next generation of leaders’.
Although the former First Lady had repeatedly denied that she had any political ambitions, highly placed Washington insiders believed Mrs Obama’s sky-high approval ratings would prompt senior Democrats to urge her to reconsider.
