President Barack Obama reportedly will go on a “farewell tour” in mid-January. In light of Democratic losses since 2009, he may want to fly over some states.
Washington Post political commentator Chris Cillizza recently wrote:
What Democrats expected to be the historic election of the first female president was instead a devastating loss — for Clinton, Obama and their political vision. That reversal of fortune was palpable in the days following the election as Democrats reeled from a knockout blow that they never even saw coming.
When President Obama passes the baton to President Donald J. Trump, Democrats will be left with memories.
