President Barack Obama has a chance to play the long game in the last years of his presidency, New York Times columnist David Brooks said.
Instead of focusing on goals of the present, he can look forward to the future and set up “The Opportunity Coalition,” which will affect the country over the long haul, Brooks wrote.
“He’ll have the chance to organize bipartisan groups of mayors, business leaders, legislators, activists and donors into permanent alliances and institutions that will formulate, lobby for, fund and promote opportunity and social mobility agendas for decades to come,” Brooks wrote.
