President Barack Obama’s long-term goal when he leaves office will be to marshal in a new generation of progressive leaders.
In an interview with his former senior advisor David Axelrod for CNN’s “The Axe Files” podcast, Obama explained his vision is “to build that next generation of leadership: organizers, journalists, politicians.”
“I see them in America, I see them around the world, 20-year-olds, 30-year-olds who are just full of talent, full of idealism,” Obama said. “And the question is how do we link them up? How do we give them the tools for them to bring about progressive change?”
“And I want to use my presidential center as a mechanism for developing that next generation of talent,” he added.
