Obama revealed what he plans to do post-presidency and it doesn’t sound good. While many presidents give to charities or relax, Obama and Michelle plan to keep working and staying a part of our lives. Damn.
His plan, he wants to train an army of young people to rebuild the failing Democratic party. “There are such incredible young people who not only worked on my campaign, but I’ve seen in advocacy groups,” started Obama.
“I’ve seen passionate about issues like climate change or conservation, criminal justice reform, you know, campaigns for a livable wage, or health insurance, and making sure that whatever resources, credibility, spotlight that I can bring to help them rise up,” said Obama.
“That’s something that I think I can do well, I think Michelle can do well. That’s part of what makes me optimistic about our future because I know those young people are out there ready to lead, and when they start moving into more and more positions of authority, then I think the issues that I care most deeply about are going to be well served,” said Obama.
He was asked if he would be a ‘talent scout’ for young Democrats. “Well, not only a talent scout but I think also, you know, a coach, a friend, somebody who can build on the incredible work that has already been done by young people and that to a large degree was responsible for getting me elected,” he said Obama.
