Lame duck President Barack Obama sees his reputation, a tattered one in my opinion, at stake, which is why he is already defending his well, accomplishments, such as the unpopular ObamaCare law.
Obama will be the first president since Woodrow Wilson not to leave Washington after his term expired. Wilson, however, was a sick man who died in DC three years later. I see ex-president Obama hanging around the capital city for the next few years and behaving like a mean poodle who is jealous that his owner has a new pet.
With Obama, his presidency was always about him.
