Video : President Obama Farewell Address

Posted on
Obama

President Obama said goodbye to the US on Tuesday night, declaring during his farewell address that he hasn’t abandoned his vision of progressive change.

“It falls to each of us to be those anxious, jealous guardians of our democracy,” the President said. “To embrace the joyous task we’ve been given to continually try to improve this great nation of ours.”

“Democracy does not require uniformity,” Obama said. “Our founders quarreled and compromised, and expected us to do the same. But they knew that democracy does require a basic sense of solidarity — the idea that for all our outward differences, we are all in this together; that we rise or fall as one.”
