Assume that Barack Obama will not win a second term. What, effectively, will he do with the rest of his life?

If Obama doesn't win a second term, he'll be 51 and jobless, with two young kids.
If I had to guess, I imagine that he would author several more books, regularly give speeches/keynote addresses, and perhaps even go back to academia. But what political contributions, if any, would he be able to make?
Considering his age, I can't imagine him completely and totally bowing out out government.
