  •  We have leverage...... (0+ / 0-)

    Unless he just plans to sit around and collect a check for the next four years, he needs us or he may as well switch parties. How's that for a legacy? He is absolutely despised by the other side. Without our support he has zero relevance.

    •  Without our support, he lives like a billionaire (3+ / 0-)

      and has a lifetime of hundred thousand dollar speaking fees  ahead of him.

      •  He'll have a 1%... (1+ / 0-)

        A 1% Retirement income without the speeches. At two years he becomes a lame duck, probably earlier now that the 2016 cycle has started. Secret Service protection. Health Care that's available to no one. He can be like Bush and reluctantly show his face or go for the grand slam and try to be like the Clinton's. But that walk-away approval rating is what counts. That's the difference between a low 7 earner like Bush or a high 8 earner like Clinton.

        It all depends on how rich he wants to be. That's where the calculations are at.

        Clinton may have had sex with that woman but I don't recall him fucking old people. So he knew instinctively how to triangulate to his best advantage. With Obama along with a second term comes ownership of a sick economy that is only getting better for those who didn't have a problem to begin with. If 2016 is the same old , same old and the old people are even more fucked , Bush will be the one most relieved.
