Last night, President Barack Obama bid the American public farewell. Washington's farewell address, when read in full, contains a scathing denunciation of the mere concept of political parties (called "factions" at the time), and Obama's followed suit in denouncing the rabidly partisan era we now find ourselves in. But I couldn't help but think, while listening to Obama's speech, about what might have been. The economy has transformed in a breathtaking way during Obama's years in office. Obama's farewell address was a great speech -- just like many other great Obama speeches we've seen.
