According to President Obama he wants to be “a talent scout, coach, and friend” to a new generation of Democratic politicians.
During President Obama’s recent NPR interview Obama stated that his work after leaving the office would involve him becoming a talent scout and coach for the DNC and he would have his wife, Michelle Obama, join him.
President Obama said, “I’m less likely to get involved in all the nuts and bolts of electioneering. In that realm, I’m much more likely to just give advice. What I am interested in is just developing a whole new generation of talent.”
Obama sees his future work being, “not only a talent scout but I think also, you know, a coach, a friend, somebody who can build on the incredible work that has already been done by young people and that to a large degree was responsible for getting me elected.”
When asked about bringing Michelle Obama into the mix, he said, “That’s something that I think I can do well, I think Michelle can do well. That’s part of what makes me optimistic about our future because I know those young people are out there ready to lead, and when they start moving into more and more positions of authority, then I think the issues that I care most deeply about are going to be well served.”
The Obama’s, on their last Hawaiian vacation as the First family, will be out of the White House after the January 20th inauguration.
