"...Obama has in recent months met with at least nine prospective 2020 Democratic presidential candidates..."

Obama put a man in the ladies room"
Who is Deval Patrick, btw? Here's an excerpt from an article:
"The meeting with Warren was Obamas second since leaving office,
according to people who know about both encounters. The first was in
the spring of 2017 after Warren said she was troubled by the
$400,000 Obama was getting to speak at a Wall Street investment firm,
describing it as an example of the influence of money that she called
a snake that slithers through Washington.
Obama responded by inviting her in. They heard each other out. She did
not apologize, but she acknowledged what shed kicked up with the
comment, and they talked about keeping that conversation in mind for
The second meeting, warmer from start to finish, came just this past
April and ran well into 90 minutes. They talked about Richard Cordray,
the former head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau who is now
the Democratic nominee for governor in Ohio. They reminisced. They
talked about Trump.
Obama and Biden remain personally close and speak by phone, and the
former vice president also came by for an in-person meeting in
January. Hes waiting until after the midterms to make a decision on
2020, though many people see him as leaning toward it. The 2020 race
and what Bidens going to do havent come up in those discussions,
though, with Obama waiting on his friend to make a decision, according
to people who have been briefed on their conversations.
Patrick, the former Massachusetts governor and personal friend whom
Obama and many in his inner circle are eager to see get into the 2020
race and who has recently been making rumblings that he very well
might has been in to the office too. Patrick, though, is on the
board of the Obama Foundation, giving them at least an outward reason
for the meeting beyond politics."
