... this sure doesn't speak well for the leader (?) of the Democratic Party:
"The president didn't come up through Democratic Party institutions, and now he has little organic connection to it."
See a pattern here?
Nobody knows to this day who Obama was before he entered Chicago politics. Nobody outside his immediate family knows who he is today. And the political party that he's nominally in charge of has no connection to him whatsoever.
He'll be leaving office (hopefully soon) and will recede into that fog out of which he came.
A strange one for the history books indeed.
