In my January 28, 2013 Blog titled “One Smart Fellow” I referenced how the Obama team was keeping their re-election team in place to support their social agenda at least through the 2014 election. I also speculated that the organization, whatever form it took could also keep Obama’s hand in deciding who would be 2016 democrat candidate for President of the U.S.
I further speculated that Hillary was between a rock and hard place if she decides to run in 2016. On one hand Hillary has the upper hand in popularity polls and on the other Obama with the help of his field team could make Hillary an almost certain winner. One thing I had not speculated on was that John Kerry might be entertaining a run at the Presidency one more time and intends to use the Secretary of State office as his bully pulpit.
However I am for the moment addressing the vehicle Obama has just put in place to support his social programs and lay the groundwork for another successful run at the Presidency by a democrat. That vehicle is the OFA. The president is offering counsel presence within the White House in exchange for a $500,000 donation to the OFA. I predict this organization will be well funded across all the lines from unions to large corporations. One thing we know for certain that the OFA, the donations and the direction of that vehicle are well directed with special goals set by President Obama. Watch the OFA grow and influence the administration in future legislation or executive order.
