Obama Goes To Congress (Because I Said So)

President Obama looks like he's recovering nicely from the last eight years:



We need him to get back to work with us! So I have a thought, though it'll never happen.

If the Democrats pick up the House in 2018, the Dem Party be in the driver's seat to elect the new Speaker of the House. That'll probably be Nancy Pelosi. Now, I love Nancy and she's one of the best Speakers we've had... but check this out:

The Constitution does not require that the Speaker be an elected House Representative, though every Speaker so far has been an elected Member of the House.

Why not push for Barack Obama as House Speaker? Not that I think he'd want do do it, but wouldn't that be an interesting incentive for people to vote Democratic in 2018? He's pretty darned popular right now.

Also, from a purely Sorkian perspective, how incredible would a direct showdown on Capitol Hill between Obama and Trump be?



30 years of Obama on the Hill? Yes, please.


UPDATE (2/25/2017, 1:25 PM): While I'm playing fantasy politics, I'm totally cool with Tom Perez or Keith Ellison as DNC Chair, but there's a better choice -- someone who's trying to straighten up his life and get a real job for the first time in years.
