This is not a timeline asking he ran for a third term. User HeavyCrown once said on my thread 2000 McCain Presidency and 2005 Invasion of Iran that President Obama was politically inexperienced, and when I Personal Messaged her asking her why, she said it was because Obama only spent three years in the Senate. For this timeline, let's say he doesn't run in 2008 and after Edwards' scandal surfaces, Hillary Clinton easily wins the Democratic Primaries. Because 2008 was a bad time for the GOP, she beats McCain-Palin and Romney-Ryan and another Clinton "cleans up after the second Bush". While she's president, Obama spends more time in the Senate and becomes politically experienced. In 2016, Obama runs for president and wins. How would his presidency be different? He once said that campaigning against Trump would have been fun.
