Obama: ‘Most Important Thing I Can Do’ Is Prepare Next Generation of Leaders

‘I’m spending a lot of time thinking about what is the most important thing I can do for my next job?’

OBAMA: “I tell you that history because on the back end now of my presidency, now that it’s completed, I’m spending a lot of time thinking about what is the most important thing I can do for my next job. And what I’m convinced of is that although there are all kinds of issues that I care about, and all kinds of issues that I intend to work on, the single most important thing I can do is to help in any way I can prepare the next generation of leadership to take up the baton and to take their own crack at changing the world.”
