The former president plots his return—as Democratic kingmaker.

 Obama visits New Zealand for a coporate speaking engagement on March 22nd.
By Simon Watts/AFP/Getty Images.

Days after the 2016 election, Barack Obama was racked by self-doubt. “What if we were wrong?” he asked his aides, his longtime senior adviser Ben Rhodes recalls in his new memoir of the Obama presidency. Had the administration “pushed too far” in its promotion of cosmopolitan values, neglecting and underestimating the simmering anger of Rust Belt workers, white identitarians, and other culture warriors who worried their country was changing too much, too fast? “Maybe,” Obama said, “people just want to fall back into their tribe.” It’s been a mark of humility, perhaps, that Obama has remained mostly silent since then, issuing only occasional statements criticizing his successor. It may also reflect a degree of political cunning: with Democrats in disarray for much of Donald Trump’s first year in office, the party has needed time to right itself, to find a new message and new leaders.

Behind the scenes, however, Obama has been quietly re-entering Democratic politics, asserting his role as presidential kingmaker ahead of the 2020 election. While Obama has steered clear of the upcoming midterms, Politico reports that he has met with at least nine possible Democratic presidential candidates in recent months, including the nominal democratic-socialist Bernie Sanders, former Massachusetts governor and close friend Deval Patrick, and financial-reform crusader Elizabeth Warren, among others. The secret appointments, which Politico confirmed with multiple sources, represent a diverse prospective field: there is also former New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu, Los Angeles and South Bend Mayors Eric Garcetti and Pete Buttigeig, and, in a more long-shot bet, former Army National Guard captain Jason Kander, who was widely considered potential presidential material before losing a Missouri senatorial bid in 2016.

According to multiple people familiar with them, the meetings run long, often over an hour. Obama tends to give advice, guidance, talk about the future of the party, and everyone’s places in it. The conversations can be searching, get philosophical, then quickly veer back to brass tacks. He’ll give his thoughts on campaigns. He’ll offer to help make sure donors and party bigwigs are returning calls.

The former president’s advice, per people briefed on the meetings, is classic No-Drama Obama: stick to the issues that matter to people, don’t get distracted, and don’t define yourself in the negative.

Many of the conversations have circled around Obama holding forth about how much Democrats should be heading into the midterms talking about the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election versus focusing on kitchen-table issues. Don’t chase the shiny objects, he tells them. Don’t hyperventilate over the flash of any tweet. Think about what’s going to stick in the long term.

That roughly tracks with the conventional wisdom in Democratic circles as they campaign in 2018: allow Democrats to run local races without national interference, don’t rock the boat with too much progressivism, and don’t make it too much about that guy in the White House. Of course, what works in the midterms won’t necessarily work in 2020, when the stakes will be national and Trump will be unavoidable. “The way to disempower Trump is to ignore him, but it’s too hard even for his opponents to do it,” Columbia Law professor Tim Wu told my colleague Peter Hamby. “It has to be a pure attention battle.” That means Democrats ultimately have to create their own programming, characters, celebrities, and story lines that are just as captivating as Trump. It will require something more than the “‘I Hate Trump’ show,” as Wu called it—but it can’t entirely ignore Trump, either.

Beating Trump at the attention battle will be a tall order for Democrats—especially given how Trump has weaponized liberal discontent to solidify his support. (One recent poll found that after his handling of the economy and his general policies, nearly 8 out of 10 G.O.P. voters in battleground House races said the thing they liked most about Trump was his commitment to “upsetting the ‘elites’ and the establishment.”) While Trump remains historically unpopular overall, he has an incredibly high approval rating within his own party, with 87 percent of Republican voters saying they approve of his performance thus far. If the economy doesn’t weaken, the wind will be at Trump’s back in 2020, despite historic Democratic activism and engagement. Democrats may need Obama-level turnout to beat back Trump’s small but intensely committed voter base.

So far, polling suggests that a generic Democrat would beat Trump, with the latest putting their chances at 44 to 36 percent. But once real Democrats get into the 2020 race, the calculus changes. Trump and his Republican allies have already painted Sanders as a radical and Warren as an opportunist. Landrieu has been criticized as a self-promoter, Patrick’s name would become synonymous with Bain Capital, and Kander could be dismissed as untested. The key for each will be to define themselves, and their narrative, before Trump can brand them himself.

Obama, who always maintained close control of his image and personal story, may be indispensable in that regard, especially at this early stage of the 2020 race. He will almost certainly emerge as a party kingmaker, whether he covets the role or not. According to Politico, Obama won’t get involved in midterm endorsements until this fall, and is not expected to endorse anyone for president until after the party coalesces around a nominee. Still, it’s possible Obama has his favorites. He remains close with former vice president Joe Biden, who is reportedly leaning toward running, and the two talk on the phone frequently. “The 2020 race and what Biden’s going to do haven’t come up in those discussions,” people briefed on those conversations said, with Obama “waiting on his friend to make a decision.”

IF a REAL AG and DoJ and FBI were to release the hounds and expose this treasonous America-hating seditionist, ValJar and rest of his co-"Resistance" for what he and they ARE.

Donald "The Hammer" Trump at some point is going to have to kick some azz and fire Deep-State assets Sessions and Rothenstein and replace them with a REAL AG and DoJ. It's ridiculous that they remain.

An actual and real mega-investigation into the coup and 0bama-Hitlery-ValJar Axis of Evil MUST be conducted and concluded with INDICTMENTS.

That's only because oppo research has been restricted by Sessions, the Feebs, and 0bama-holdovers while evidence that exposes this traitor and saboteur for what he is has been insulated and hidden by the same 0bama-holdover and RINO firewalls.

The whole fake "RUSSIA!!" charade has been nothing but a stalling/misdirection tactic by the MSM-Dem-RINO Machine to keep Trump on the defensive so he *can't* muster investigations on the 0bama-Hitlery treachery. The Dems/Media/Ryan-wing of the GOP are trying to run out the clock till 2020.

The 2012 campaign started as soon as he whupped your boy Juan McStain.

WHOSE "boy"??

Hondo, you seem unable to comprehend exactly how the 2008 campaign *actually* went down. IF anything, Republicans, consevatives and independents were voting AGAINST 0bama and not FOR McStain. Let me refresh your memory in brief:

The GOPe fixed the primaries to set up McStain for an easy lay-up and nomination. Stain's *Democrat* handlers/"strategists" like Schmit and Wallace chose Palin as VP because they thought she would be a perfect scapegoat for Stain's pre-emptively planned losing campaign. Instead she almost drove him to the Finish Line. UNTIL Stain sandbagged sabotaged his own campaign (sorta like Poppy Bush against Clinton in '92).

0bama did not so much "win" as McStain purposely lost in what was an orchestrated Fix.

Same for Trump, he's been campaigning for 2020 since he was elected.

EXCEPT that while 0bama was campaigning, he was DESTROYING America at every turn.

Though Trump may remain in a re-election mode (which helps the mid-terms), HIS agenda *during* his Presidency has clearly been MAGA; *His* election for 2020 would EXTEND MAGA. You got a problem with that?

The D&R party is constantly maneuvering to get a worse candidate elected. It's their secret of success.

I actually agree with your statement in the case of the Establishment GOP snakes.

What you still can't seem to grasp or admit is...Donald Trump is NOT nor has EVER been part of the past "D&R" Uni-Party Statist-Globalist machine and rubber-stamp agenda. Which is exactly why the Ryan-McStain GOPe-wing keep on attempting to sabotage Donald Trump's MAGA agenda.

Hear ya on the frustration, Stoner.

Pretty sure we've discussed this.

Some possible theories:

1) Trump may be giving ALL benefit of doubt to Sessions before jettisoning
2) They had an iron-clad "deal"
3)Trump has been blackmailed/threatened NOT to cut loose Sessions
4) Sessions and his Dem-GOPe co-saboteur might have booby-trapped the DoJ, and there are still too many operatives infesting Dept
5)Trump can only ease out/fire Sessions/Rothenstein ONLY when enough trusted personnel are able to re-take the DoJ and get a handle on the dept.

As in all wars, before a major decision is made to attack an enemy, all communications, positioning, fire-power, leadership, and tactics must be refined and ready. HOPEFULLY, this is the case.

The "RUSSIA!"/fake Mueller "Investigation" tactic by the Dem-GOPe enemy was initially designed as their "Nuke". By necessity it's become stalling tactic. When Trump is free to focus on IT, the Coup and collusion, the Dems and GOPe are going to hemorrhage.

Sometimes I wonder if Sessionszzzzzzz is just sitting there, collecting evidence on all these 0bama operatives and we'll wake up some morning and find out that Holder/Lynch/Brennan/Rosenstein/Comey/McCabe/Mueller have all been arrested on the orders of the A.G.

There is something uncharacteristic about the way Sessions is behaving. For a while I thought maybe they had something to blackmail him with. Then I thought he was just incompetent or something. But those don't add up when you see he's still quite aggressive.

Hopefully, one day he'll prove me wrong by arresting the entire bunch along with some NSA/FBI/CIA holdovers.

By remaining in DC, he's made it obvious that he and ValJar are plotting and planning AND extending their War on America. You wonder how "stealthy" they can actually be given Trump technically still controls the FBI and other monitoring agencies.

(OH WAIT -- there are still innumerable 0bama-holdovers and operative still left within the Feeb.)

Until agencies are sanitized and de-infested from within of these 0bama holdovers/sentries, Trump/America are going to have problems with these seditious troublemakers.

Beating Trump at the attention battle will be a tall order for Democrats—especially given how Trump has weaponized liberal discontent to solidify his support.

Vanity Fare truly is a deranged libtard hive of lies, projection and insanity.

Don't overlook the above spin: "Trump has weaponized liberal discontent"

What is the truth of the matter?

More like, "Trump has weaponized the truth in defense of the soul of America in a war waged by Dem-Left Media Propaganda, along with its merchants of hate and lies".

RELATED:

If you click the link to the word "weaponized", it leads straight to another deranged Vanity Fare hit-piece on the President, titled, 'Would Republicans Let Trump Get Away with Murder?', an even more pathetic hit-piece.

Given its authoress Tina Nguyen is obviously of Vietnamese descent, she winds up spitting on souls of Americans who've bled, sacrificed and died defending her dady/granddaddy's Vietnam from Communism and enslavement.

Wanna be further enraged? THIS Lefty author is one more privileged woulda-shoulda-coulda-been Third Worlder and Leftist Diva boasting of her "fantasy" on Twitter. YOU, my friends are her target as one more narcissistic Millennial princess and leftist vampire pre-emptively celebrates the "death of American experiment":

sometimes I'll be walking through NYC in a cute outfit, jazz musicians playing on the street, and think "damn, look at me, living the writer's life in the Big City"

and then I remember I write about the slow death of the American democratic experiment

IF that were the case he'd have busted a move long ago and not let the Fake "RUSSIA!!" anal probe deepen to this absurd point. You're obviously still hoping for a best case scenario and ideal resolution -- that Sessions was merely patiently waiting for the right time to pull the pin.

Unfortunately I see Sessions either as a hostage and casualty of Deep State shenanigans OR Trojan Horse/ally of the Deep State, Dems and GOPe.

There is a real chance that might happen after Trump gets some solid accomplishments behind him,like this NK thing.

Nobody,not even an outsider like Trump can just come in and start cleaning house the first day. Yeah,he or she can get away with forcing some of the "second-tier Injuns" to resign to avoid prosecution,but none of the Chiefs.

HOWEVER,if Trump gets a second term,look for heads to start rolling early. I suspect the Dims/RINO's biggest fear is a second term President Trump with solid accomplishments behind him announcing he is going to start draining the swamp.

If this happens you will see more panic than when Wall Street collapsed at the start of the Depression.

Yeah, I'm way too hopeful, given the paucity of anything to confirm my suspicions.

OTOH, Jeff isn't so snoozy when it comes to border enforcement and other matters. So he hasn't gone entirely senile or lax on the job.

CNSnews: Attorney General Sessions: ‘If You Cross the Southwest Border Unlawfully, Then We Will Prosecute You’

(CNSNews.com) - Attorney General Jeff Sessions told a conference of the nation’s federal immigration court judges that he has instituted a “zero tolerance” policy for people who illegally cross the Southwest border and that all illegal crossers should be prosecuted.

“I have put in place a ‘zero tolerance’ policy for illegal entry on our Southwest border,” Sessions told the judges. “If you cross the Southwest border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you. It’s that simple.

“If someone is smuggling illegal aliens across our Southwest border, then we will prosecute them,” Sessions said.

“Period,” he said.

Here is the transcript from the part of Sessions remarks where he explained his “zero tolerance” policy:
“I have put in place a ‘zero tolerance’ policy for illegal entry on our Southwest border. If you cross the Southwest border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you. It’s that simple.

“If someone is smuggling illegal aliens across our Southwest border, then we will prosecute them. Period.

“I have sent 35 prosecutors to the Southwest and moved 18 immigration judges to detention centers near the border. That is about a 50 percent increase in the number of immigration judges who will be handling cases at the border.

“All of us should agree that, by definition, we ought to have zero illegal immigration in this country.

“Each of us is a part of the Executive Branch, and it is our duty to ‘take care that the laws be faithfully executed.’

“Ours is a public trust. A responsibility.

“And the United States of America is not a vague idea. It is not just a landmass or an economy. Ours is a sovereign nation state with a constitution, laws, elections, and borders.”

Not too snoozy in that speech. My guess is that the judges at that conference who don't keep up their quotas of case processing might soon find themselves choosing between retiring or joining those 18 judges in those lovely border courtrooms. That would be like the Jeff Sessions I recall. He can be very tough.

there are still innumerable 0bama-holdovers and operative still left within the Feeb.)

Until agencies are sanitized and de-infested from within of these 0bama holdovers/sentries, Trump/America are going to have problems with these seditious troublemakers.

They should have been de-infested the first week of Trump's presidency.

TRUE. (IF we assume the inner-workings and government dynamics indeed worked constitutionally AND as intended, it might have been.)

OTHER ROAD-BLOCKS:

What's rarely considered or presumed is the extent and depth that 0bama Admin purposely and methodically booby-trapped as much of the personnel and process as possible.

From the recent IG Report we can clearly see that the entire high echelon of FBI were run by 0bama-ites whose disdain and contempt for Trump precluded them from running an honest department.

Donald Trump could not possibly know just how deeply and pervasive the degree of sedition and corruption went. Remember -- from the outset many feared serving under this President (or were Republican "NEVER TRUMPERS"), which left Trump short of personnel AND way too many 0bama-holdovers, aka saboteur still within the Deep State agencies (which many STILL remain entrenched"). OF SUBSTANTIAL NOTE: Jeff Sessions FOOLED Trump.

Our ONLY chance in extracting any real justice and de-infestation of traitors and members of the still ongoing coup may have to wait out a SECOND Trump Admin.

Those who most loudly PROMOTE Fake News are typically those most aggressively and ironically claim to support 'Freedom'.

Hell, why not say you need to wait 75 years.
