January 10, 2017 (Farewell Address)

President Barack Obama chose his adoptive hometown of Chicago to deliver his farewell address. While most Presidents deliver their final address from the oval office in the White House, President Obama chose Chicago's McCormick Place to bid America farewell. With a multitude of media from around the world and a packed convention center, President Obama walked out to a thunderous applause and a 2-minute standing ovation. He spoke about being that first-term Senator that many people thought "wasn't ready" to run for a high office such as President. Obviously, he proved those people wrong by serving two terms as our 44th President of the United States. President Obama also spoke on one of his biggest accomplishments as President, which was passing the affordable care act...also known as Obama Care. Throughout his speech, the crowd kept chanting, "Four more years"! But as we all know, a President can't serve more than two terms in office. At the end of President Obama's 1-hour, prime time speech, Vice-President Joe Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden, along with First Lady Michelle Obama and daughter Malia joined The President on stage. Their other daughter, Sasha was away studying for finals.
