Will BHO's post-presidential memoir be self serving or explanatory?
He ascends to the presidency, "impossibly" in 2008, which just happens to find the US in an economic meltdown.
And he has Afghanistan and Iraq, totally mismanaged by his predecessor.
Curiously, he extends a bi-partisan hand to a Republican party who only want to destroy him and he bails out Wall Street.
Supporters scratched their heads until their scalps bled.
Beyond that, the not so subtle, by a long shot, a public resurgence of the ugliest racism we have seen so often in this country.
And those who do that have no compunction not only to attack the president, but his elegant, engaged and cheerful wife.
As a news junkie, I can tell you nothing like this happened against a First Lady with the exception of HRC.
I appreciate the perspective of those who say "The President is smarter than me." We well deserve a president who is smarter than the average Joe/Joanne.
Obama has been less forthcoming than one would expect. So it will be interesting to hear what he says in the hereafter.
If he can enable the hereafter.
