Obama is leaving politics folks! YUHUUU! Many have wondered what President Barack Obama might do after leaving the White House. Will he go on a speaking tour? Publish another book?
All of these are going to make him millions of dollars!
Assume the de facto role of the much-needed leader of the Democrat Party? Move to California and become a movie star? Retire to a safe space and get some rest like his predecessor George W. Bush?
He has too big ears to be a movie star!
The last is unlikely, as Obama has already declared he will not be staying out of the fray, even going so far as to suggest he will criticize President-elect Donald Trump if it’s “helpful or necessary.” From The Hill:
One interesting idea, given the outgoing president’s general tendency to view himself a citizen of the world rather than just the United States, has Obama possibly working for the United Nations. His latest essay may lend that theory some credence.
The Lonely Planet, a popular travel guidebook, was the recipient of an exclusive essay by the 44th president on how travel is “hope for the future.” From Publisher’s Weekly:
“I leave office more convinced than ever before that international cooperation is indispensable,” wrote President Barack Obama, as part of a 900-plus word reflection…”
What’s more, the White House reached out the the travel guidebook publisher, not the other way around.
So he is going to be a travel writer?! WOW!
Lonely Planet has edited leaders such as Aung San Suu Kyi and the Dalai Lama in the past, but this felt different, says editorial director Tom Hall. “I was keen for the president to reflect on his own travels while he was in office,” says Hall. “It was a chance to share a universal message that reflects our core belief that travel is a force for good.”
Whatever Obama’s next move is, there’s a very good chance it will be on the global stage.
America is worse than when he become president, but he is in very good shape, he just bought new house in California!
