5. Along those lines:


This president has become an expert at making his political opponents reactive instead of proactive. It has been years since Republicans defined an issue (the ACA) ahead of the President. After winning control of all of Congress last year, Republicans have been forced to play defense and react to Obama’s immigration executive orders, the nuclear deal with Iran, the restoring of diplomatic relations with Cuba, and the Paris climate change agreement. Republicans won Congress, but Obama dominated the agenda.

Obama’s increased presence in 2016 means that there will be less media attention and spotlight to go around for the Republican candidates. The Democrats have serious star power in 2016. Hillary Clinton, President Obama, former president Bill Clinton, and Michelle Obama are all capable of generating media coverage on their own. Bernie Sanders has become a grassroots juggernaut, who draws big crowds and attention everywhere he goes.
