Just like the Clinton Clan before them, the Obama Clan have no actual home.
President Reagan had his ranch in California; President George HW Bush had his home in Kennebunkport; President ‘Dubya’ Bush had Crawford, Texas; but just like President Clinton, President Obama has no central base; travelers never do.
Specifically because of a life determined by self-interest ideology, when the time comes to dismount the high horse there’s a common inability of Clinton and Obama to do so. There is a very specific dynamic, a symptomatic common connection.
This commonality represents the one litmus test which should apply to anyone seeking higher political office: If your home is contingent upon “the office“, the alarm bells which identify self-serving shallowness should sound loudly.
This reality also provides inherently predictable evidence of what will follow Obama’s time in office; his inherent inability to go quietly into a post-presidency. Unlike his predecessor Barack Obama will be a loud, visible and blame-casting antagonist toward President Donald Trump.
At various times Obama has lived in Hawaii, Indonesia, Southern California, NYC, Chicago and Washington DC. After he leaves office he will remain (at least temporarily) in Washington. Apparently the Obamas have no interest in returning to Chicago. We hear rumors that he plans to buy a house in either Hawaii, Palm Springs, or both.
I’m guessing he and Michelle will live separate lives but maintain the pretense of a marriage, just like Bill and Hillary.
