Although the Baxter family is surrounded by sports, the narrative is about to change with his wife, Vanessa running for a political post. Baxter is encouraging his wife to run for office and he is not sorry!

During a television comedy series titled "Last Man Standing." Tim Allen made a suggestion that somehow stuck with the Baxters. He mentioned that Baxter's wife should find something to do with her extra time, and that is when he mentioned politics.

During "The Office," Vanessa was furious because she had no idea why she needed to start a tutoring business. However, Carol mentioned to her that it was a great idea because most kids were faced with poor teachings at school. Mike decided to get an office space for his wife, but her reaction to it showed that she did not buy the idea.

Later on, Mike engaged Vanessa in the office and encouraged her to run for state assembly. When he mentioned the idea, Vanessa laughed it off because she had no idea why he would suggest such a thing.


"Well, you have a passion for kids. I know you can make a difference." Mike said.

Hearing this, Vanessa was quick to remind him that he was a political critic and virtually hated everything about the government. Mike admitted to this, but he mentioned that the only way capitalism would work, is if it happens in a functioning democracy.

After a while, Vanessa seemed to be into the idea, but she did not give him a response.
