Which Way, Obama?

There’s an article in the Huffington Post, it’s been up a day or two, about how Obama is thinking about stepping up and leading a stop Bernie drive.
I read the article, a lot of it is “a source familiar with Obama’s thinking said” and stuff like that, but just because people don’t want their names used doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not true. Also, the Huffington Post tends to be of the limousine liberal persuasion. Not exactly progressive.
So, the whole thing should be taken with a grain of salt, but I’m willing to entertain the possibility that it’s true. He did endorse Hillary over Bernie in 2016, although he waited until fairly late in the game to do it, and his policies were never anywhere near as comprehensive as Bernie’s. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he endorsed his former V.P. and good friend, Joe Biden.
But, it doesn’t really matter. If he does support somebody other than Bernie, it will affect his legacy more than it affects Bernie’s chances of winning. He has been silent long enough, and the pace of change has been quick enough, that even though he was President up until 3 years ago, his opinion now would be drowned in the waves, just one among many.
If he doesn’t support somebody else specifically, just comes out and says “I don’t like Bernie and don’t want him to be the nominee” his reputation as a man of the people who wants the best thing for all mankind goes straight into the toilet. I’ve seen enough aerial views of his Martha’s Vineyard mansion. So has everybody else.
