Barack Obama is Ready to Return to Politics Posted on March 3, 2017, One comment “It’s coming. He’s coming.” Source: Barack Obama is Ready to Return to Politics Share This: One comment bwpage3 - March 3, 2017 11:33 pm Why would the ex-President want to return to politics? Politics is much more than a popularity contest. Obama needs to carefully review what his actual achievements were during his entire 8 years in office. Whatever he perceives them to be, they did not help Hillary Clinton get elected and maybe his lack of performance, (8 more years) was the real reason Hillary did not get elected. Race relations were at an all time worse.
