President Obama To Bid Farewell In Tonight's Speech

And yet, "They're very graceful to their successor, and I'd expect President Obama to be, even though this has been a very political climate, this transition".

Obama in his speech wants to cast a "forward-looking" vision for a country, those officials say, insisting his message won't be directed exclusively at his successor, CNN reported. I'm talking about Rogers Park, we've got people from Edgewater.

Taxpayers will pick up the tab for the flight because, in spite of the president using the event to fundraise, the event itself is considered an official job function. "This is not a victory lap speech. It's harder when you are", she said. But thanks to millions of Democrats like you, we've been able to prove them wrong time and again.

Alluding to one of his favored metaphors for the presidency - a relay race - Obama said he was now ready to hand over the baton.

He was determined to get nine teens from his program in to see the president say goodbye. Online sellers said they were offloading theirs because they were "struggling" college students or looking to finance a honeymoon.

"It was important to the president personally that this not be a rally..."

Cody Garbrandt busts out dance move after ducking punches
The opening moments of the first round saw the elusive Cruz keep his distance but land shots from outside of the pocket. But the tension between him and Garbrandt has boiled over recently, and it all came to a head at the UFC 207 weigh-ins.

He will work to "lift up and mentor the next generation", Ms. Psaki said.

"It's where he first really learned the lesson through action that it's about the actions of individuals and the actions of people, that's how real change happens", said Jen Psaki, Obama's communications director.

But during their meeting in White House after the election, Mr Obama told Mr Trump, "We now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed". The answer was no. The White House's official Facebook page will also have a livestream. In a statement last week, he said his words would be "a chance to say thank you for this unbelievable journey, to celebrate the ways you've changed this country for the better these past eight years, and to offer some thoughts on where we all go from here". "But it will take a closer look, and spend more time talking about what the president believes is necessary for us to confront the challenges that lie ahead", he said. I hope you'll join me one last time. For Obama, that probably means it will run less than an hour.

Obama will return to his hometown of Chicago and will bid farewell to the nation at the McCormick Place convention.

While Obama and his advisers have given a preview of a speech focused on accomplishments, there are hints that he will issue a warning of sorts to incoming president Donald Trump.
