6. I think he's a 2-termer, no matter which candidate the GOP nominates in
2012. Which means both he and Michelle are 2-termers and can do the world a world of good for a sustained period of time.

Afterward, I see them both in the continuum of service that has brought them to where they are and will likely inpsire them to keep going.

Foundations, global poverty, educational reform, university work, health care advocacy -- really there is nothing they could take on that they wouldn't bolster dramatically. What allies they would be to lend their time and talents to any fight worth the fighting.
