Dan Pfeiffer, long-time aid to Barack Obama, and his Senior Advisor for Strategy and Communication until joining CNN, told reporters at a Bloomberg Policy Breakfast last November that Obama needed a Democrat to win the 2016 to cement the “core elements” of his legacy.
“It’s very important because I know what we did in the first 100 days of our administration, and it was go through a lot of what President Bush did and sign executive orders doing the opposite,” Pfeiffer said.
And we all know how important his legacy is to Barack Obama. He’d do anything to achieve it—from selling out his country and its allies to an evil theocratic regime that needs a nuke to hasten the advent of the 12th Imam and the subsequent apocalypse, to serving as the Grand Ayatollah’s butt boy. So setting up a Democrat successor must be very high on his agenda at this time.
