When President Obama leaves office, will the Democratic Party become stronger or weaker?
I think O has hurt the party. They will be better off without him!
I think stronger, but in all honesty I feel that our political culture today is one in which this will be true of any two-term president regardless of party. If I'm right (and nothing says I am) then we could end up in a perfect pattern of nothing
but two-term presidents alternating between major parties consecutively. So for example, the next prez would be Repub, and achieve reelection.
A lot stronger.
I enjoyed all of your feedback. I, personally, think that Obama has changed the Democrat Party into something else that is strong only with him and that without him it will return or fail, but will not support itself.
It's become the Obama Party.
