( CNN) Though recent vacation photos evidence Barack Obama basking in the warm sunlight of retirement, while jet-skiing away any political worries, his former staffer alludes to a second act.

Currently the chief operating officer of Vice Media, Mastromonaco served as Obama’s White House deputy chief of staff for procedures from 2011 through 2014. However, her ties to the nation’s 44 th President go back much further, as she first worked for Obama during his periods as an Illinois state senator.

“I remember Barack Obama is probably still the leader of the Democratic Party, even though he is … on hiatus right now.” she told Erin Burnett on Friday. “Hopefully … going to get 2018 … will be a moment where the Democratic Party’s identity crisis is over.”
