The most dangerous two years are upon us, as Obama has nothing to lose but his legacy.
Preserving that legacy, as unpopular as it has proven to be, is all he has now. Obama himself said his policies were on the ballot. And the people spoke last night, rejecting those policies.
Obama has gutted the Democratic Party. It is a party without a younger generation of leadership.
The supposed rising female stars who were to lead the War on Women battle charge were wiped out last night — Wendy Davis, Alison Grimes, Mary Burke. Add to them the loss of Kay Hagan and the likely December runoff loss for Mary Landrieu.
Last night, by contrast, saw the rise of Elise Stefanik, Mia Love, Joni Ernst, and numerous other Republicans who are the future of the party, joining other next generation leaders from the 2010 wave.
In a party devoid of a short term future, Obama has a choice — give up at least some of his legacy, or go rogue, using his executive powers to continue to push his agenda despite the wave election rejecting his policies.
Politico suggests there will be no pivot.
What’s it gonna be?
Will Obama go rogue?
