How To Rewatch Obama's Farewell Speech After The Inauguration

It's official — Barack Obama is now formally relieved of his duties as the president of the United States. And on his way out the door, heading to his last trip aboard Air Force One, bound for Palm Springs, California, President 44 gave his final speech at Joint Base Andrews. In case you missed it, here's how to rewatch Obama's post-inauguration farewell speech.

And yet, all of you came together, in small towns and big cities… you knocked on doors and you made phone calls. You talked to your parents, who didn’t know how to pronounce Barack Obama. ...

Throughout it was infused with a sense of hope. … It wasn’t blind optimism that drove you to do all this work, it wasn’t naiveté … it was hope in the face of difficulty. It was hope in the face of uncertainty. ...

This is just a little pit stop. This is not a period, this is a comma. In the continuing story of building America ...

He'll be back from the SoCal getaway soon, though, since the Obamas plan to stay in Washington, D.C. You can watch the full speech here at CBS News.
