But the president was not in a jam, himself, Tuesday night, when he arrived in the very windy city of Chicago for his farewell address.
#Barack Obama farewell
They came to hear President Barack Obama say goodbye — and to say goodbye themselves.
President Obama chose Chicago as the site of his farewell speech, but he has never forgotten the role Springfield played in his journey.
President Barack Obama will use his farewell address at McCormick Place on Tuesday “to motivate people to get involved and fight for their democracy.”
