Could Sleepy Joe be clinging to power to give Michelle Obama a chance at presidency?

There was something missing from Sunday night’s Super Bowl, the biggest date in the U.S. sporting calendar, that not even the appearance of Taylor Swift cheering on her football star boyfriend Travis Kelce could make up for.

Joe Biden skipped the traditional pregame presidential interview, a 15-year-old White House tradition. Given that it’s a light-hearted affair with no searching questions, and went out to some 40 million viewers on the night, any presidential candidate’s decision to pass it up with a general election around the corner seems almost inconceivable.

The explanation from Biden’s team was unconvincing. Sports fans “don’t want to hear from a politician so I think he made the right choice for himself at this time”, explained campaign co-chair Mitch Landrieu.

Actually, Americans would love to hear from Biden but get precious little opportunity to do so beyond rare and tightly controlled press conferences and meetings with international politicians such as Rishi Sunak where the Leader of the Free World works off cue cards. When he goes off script, it’s invariably disastrous.

Republicans have, of course, been issuing warnings about the increasingly doddery Biden for years. Donald Trump was insisting before the 2020 election that his gaffe-prone political rival had slipped into senility. Back then, such jibes were dismissed by Democrats as tasteless scaremongering. But now the Left, too, are starting to express their fears.
