Today, President Obama is in Chicago to say a public goodbye from POTUS to his home-city. The event occurs at McCormick Place and will be live-streamed through the White House.
Michelle Obama made her public goodbye speech at the White House on January 6, to a group of committed educators.
Where does America go from here?
Apparently some extreme challenges lie ahead, but the Obama presidency has done more to make education and progress available to all than any preceding presidency I can think of. And both the Obamas deserve extra kudos for always being articulate examples of grace and good-will.
