For Barack Obama

But what were these hopes in which he was disappointed? What were these wishes in which he was frustrated? What was that faith that was abused? They were surely among the most noble and benevolent instincts of the human heart-the love of peace, the provision of universal medical care, justice for all, fairness to all; empathy for others. Whatever else history may or may not say about the terrible, tremendous year of 2016 we can be sure that Barack Obama acted with perfect sincerity according to his lights and strove to the utmost of his capacity and authority, which were powerful, to save the Republic and the world, and to make each a better place. This alone will stand him in good stead as far as what is called the verdict of history is concerned.
