Obama hands off the presidency to Trump — and the burdens that go with it

It is hard to recall another inauguration in which the television images of an incoming and outgoing president so vividly conveyed the psychic drama of the moment.
As Barack Obama and Donald Trump made their way Friday to the stage on the West Front of the Capitol, their body language spoke to an unimaginable burden being lifted from one set of shoulders and falling on another.

They made their way beside each other through the hallways of the Capitol, with Obama occasionally patting Trump on the back. Or was that, perhaps, a nudge forward?

Before Trump emerged into an overcast day and took in the crowd that awaited on the Mall, the incoming president paused. He has treated the weeks since his election as a triumphal victory lap; now, another race begins — one to secure his place in history with actual achievements.

Obama’s return: Good or bad for Democrats?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly two years out of the White House, former President Barack Obama is facing another political test.

To the delight of many Democrats, he’s stepped back into the fray that former presidents often try to avoid, campaigning for Democratic candidates ahead of the midterms and blasting the political culture of the Trump era. He attracted a large, adoring crowd this past week in Ohio and will be in Pennsylvania on Friday campaigning for Democratic Sen. Bob Casey.

But Obama’s return poses challenges for both the former president and his party. For one, Obama has struggled to turn admiration for him into votes when he’s not on the ballot. Democrats lost significant ground in the 2010 and 2014 midterms and his enthusiastic campaigning for Hillary Clinton didn’t carry her across the finish line in 2016. Perhaps more importantly, Obama’s public re-entry into politics could serve as a motivating factor for Republicans, potentially handing the GOP a gift at a time when they face an uphill battle to maintain their grip on Congress.

“This is perfect for us,” said Rep. Lou Barletta, the Republican challenging Casey for the Senate seat. “It will energize Republicans as a reminder.”

The former president will also “energize those blue-collar Democrats who worried about their jobs under Obama and went out to vote for Donald Trump,” Barletta added.
