Do you miss Barack Obama?

It's been over a year since former president Barack Obama welcomed Donald Trump to Washington, and what a year it has been. On Inauguration Day, Obama left the new president a letter wishing him success in his coming term.

Congratulations on a remarkable run. Millions have placed their hopes in you, and all of us, regardless of party, should hope for expanded prosperity and security during your tenure.
Michelle and I wish you and Melania the very best as you embark on this great adventure, and know that we stand ready to help in any ways which we can.

Obama's recent appearance on David Letterman's new Netflix series reignited feelings among many of his fans: "Come back, Barack!"

When Letterman introduces Obama, who arrived as a surprise guest at the taping, the audience responds with a euphoria that looks a lot like the way Winfrey’s audience once responded to being given a car.

SNL even created a hilarious music video titled "Come Back, Barack" begging the former president to return.

President Trump's first year was one mired in scandal after scandal, leaving many longing for the Obama days.

Obama and Trump couldn't be any more different. Obama was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. Trump was the host of a reality TV show.

But not everyone misses Obama. To those who believe his administration was a failure and his presidency was one of unprecedented divide in America, they're glad to see him gone.

And the anger doesn't just come from Trump fans. Plenty of people on the left decry Obama's policies as neoliberal corporatism that decimated the white working class and handed us Trump.

The past eight years of policymaking have damaged Democrats at all levels. Recovering Democratic strength will require the party’s leaders to come to terms with what it has become — and the role Obama played in bringing it to this point.
