Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Hank Shea is calling for Michelle Obama to be Joe Biden’s running mate.

Shea, who is now a distinguished fellow at the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minneapolis, made his comments in a column posted Tuesday by the Star Tribune newspaper.

"Today, Americans must call upon one person to answer a national call to duty because her country critically needs her to help put us on a path to healing a broken nation and restoring trust in our elected leaders.," he said.

"We collectively must implore a reluctant Michelle Obama to make herself available to join Joe Biden’s ticket as the Democratic Party’s vice presidential nominee.

“On top of a global pandemic, our cities now are facing massive unrest, violence and destruction, and threats to the social order, arising from yet another series of horrific killings of unarmed African-American men and women by the police — and all built upon decades of "acial injustice and inequality."

He ripped the "current occupant of the White House" for lacking “calm, thought and principled leadership."

And he said the nation needs a person, who can bring people together.

"Obama is that person if she will accept the mantle of civic duty and personal sacrifice that our nation so desperately needs from her," Shea said.

And he added: I can only hope and pray that come next January 2021, our nation will have the opportunity to have Joe Biden and Michelle Obama lead us forward.”
