President Obama delivered his final press conference today in a room packed with enthusiastic correspondents. The President was very generous with his time, and at ease with reporters, in stark contrast to President Elect Trump’s first press conference, which was fraught with tension.
President Obama proved once again that he will be a tough act to follow. He was dignified, thoughtful, courteous, and eloquent, with moments of understated humor. He looks forward to time to reflect and take stock of his service as President, after his long tenure in office, but acknowledged that some serious political, social and environmental issues will get him back out, as a private citizen, advocating for change.
