The Exit Interview That  Speaks Volumes 

Image: Vanity Fair—Barak Obama and Doris Kearns Goodwin

I never remember reading a presidential exit interview like the one, Doris Kearns Goodwin, a  well-known presidential historian, just did with Barak Obama in the November issue of Vanity Fair. It was the last feature in the magazine  that month. 

I wish I could share the “Audible  link” to this interview with you because Obama really spells out what it’s like to be President of the United States. I wanted you to hear his voice. You’ll just have to read it in.print as he talks about “his ambitions, frustrations, and the decisions that still haunt him.”

  1. Yes it does speaks volumes, thanks Lois. To me, President Obama exemplifies how a President should be—his steadfast & reassuring temperament, optimism, hopefulness & inspirational to his country. I never felt that his ego took center stage, always altruistic. Many people forget what he inherited when he took office…he brought dignity back to the Presidency. He fulfilled many of his promises. Trump doesn’t care about us—hopefully our democracy will hold him in check in the next very worrisome 4 years.
