Obama Farewell Address Expected to Focus on Nation's Future
With less than two weeks to go as Commander-in-Chief, President Obama is preparing to deliver his farewell address tonight from his hometown of Chicago.
The President will be joined by First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden at the McCormick Place convention center.
His advisers say his speech will focus on the country's future, and how the American people can help build on his successes and move the nation forward.
The address continues a tradition set in 1796 when George Washington addressed the American people for the last time as president.
NY1 will bring you the President's remarks live at 9 p.m.
