Given the loud sucking sound coming from the utter void of leadership at the Democrat National Committee, it comes as no surprise that Barack Obama is still the defacto leader of the party.
Since Hillary’s abysmal, surprise loss in the 2016 election, precisely no one wants to look to her for advice on how to win.
And the present leaders of the DNC are nothing more than stand-ins for Obama.
So, that might explain why Obama is holding secret meetings in his post-presidential limelight office with prospective Democrat candidates on strategies that might prove to overcome Donald Trump in 2020.
Among those candidates, according to reports, are Elizabeth Warren, Deval Patrick, Bernie Sanders and Joe ‘BFD’ Biden.
The bottom line is this: Democrats have no plan for the future, so the old one is the only game in town.
And now that they’ve gotten a taste of what ‘change’ means to Obama, the after-taste leaves much wanting.
Here’s more from Politico…
Barack Obama has in recent months met with at least nine prospective 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden and Deval Patrick, pulling them in for one-on-one sessions at his Washington office.
All the meetings were arranged quietly, without even some close advisers to the people involved being told of the conversations, in part because of how much Obama bristles at his private meetings becoming public knowledge. All have been confirmed to POLITICO by multiple people who have been briefed on the secretive sit-downs.
The meetings have been at Obama’s personal office on the third floor of the World Wildlife Fund building in D.C.’s West End neighborhood, and they show how a stream of ambitious, searching politicians are looking for guidance and support from the man who has remained the reluctant leader of the Democratic Party, eager to be involved, though not directly. He’s not making any promises of support, though, and is not expected to endorse in the 2020 race until after a nominee has emerged.
