'Like the good old days': Obama returns to the White House for the first time as Democrats look ahead to midterm elections
When former President Barack Obama walked into the White House on Tuesday, it was his first time in the building since he welcomed then-President-elect Donald Trump for coffee on the morning of Trump's inauguration.
(CNN)When former President Barack Obama walks into the White House on Tuesday, it will be his first time in the building since he welcomed then-President-elect Donald Trump for coffee on the morning of Trump's inauguration.
His return to the White House is the first sign of what many Democrats hope will be his increased involvement in the 2022 midterm elections. The former President and former first lady Michelle Obama are two of the most sought-after party leaders -- expected to be in high demand by Senate and House candidates this year.
I'm actually surprised it took this long for an Obama White House visit.
As in my 2nd excerpt from my article, I do suspect this is the opening salvo in getting Obama on the mid-term campaign trail.
