15. SCOTUS would be awesome.

And I voted for that ... but its possible he'll focus on inner city problems. As President, he really could not touch problems that proportionally impact African Americans harder than other groups.

But when he's out of office, he'd be able to do so, and do so with great effect.

He'll be remembered as having been an outstanding President, for all the whining from parts of the left, and the racist BS from the right. The reality is, he stopped the economic crash that was going to match the Great Depression.

He's also rather young. So I suspect he'll stay very active. Michelle too. And hey, perhaps he'll start with some foundation work to improve the lives of struggling Americans, and THEN head off to the SCOTUS.

He's a multi-tasker ... he could do multiple things on this list, easily!!!
