President Obama suffered a rebuke at the ballot box last month. But his presidency continues to shrink. There’s been the embarrassing release of WikiLeaks secret, the collapse of his Middle East policy, the unseemly push for the START treaty, and then the recruitment of a predecessor, Bill Clinton, to come to the White House to push his domestic agenda. Obama is now at his smallest state since he became President.
The only thing Obama has actual passion and drive for, and works hard at, is campaigning. And it’s easy to see why: it feeds his narcissism.
