Depremierende Bilder aus dem verlassenen Weißen Haus in der Washington Post: The White House went ghost on Obama’s last night. Here’s what it looked like. (via Wonkette)

imrs-3The lights didn't quite go out at the White House on Thursday night, but the compound at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. took on a ghostly quality as most of President Obama's staff moved out. Desks were emptied. Iconic photographs of Obama came off the walls. Handwritten notes were left for the Obama aides' successors.

And a Marine guard left his post outside the West Wing at around 6 p.m., signaling that the president had left the Oval Office for the final evening. Just before he did, fireworks celebrating a concert for President-elect Donald Trump exploded in the sky, just visible above the Old Executive Office Building next to the White House.

Barrack Obamas letzte Nachricht: Thank you – You made me a better President, and you made me a better man.

All of us, regardless of party, should throw ourselves into that work — the joyous work of citizenship. Not just when there’s an election, not just when our own narrow interest is at stake, but over the full span of a lifetime.

I’ll be right there with you every step of the way.

And when the arc of progress seems slow, remember: America is not the project of any one person. The single most powerful word in our democracy is the word ‘We.’ ‘We the People.’ ‘We shall overcome.’

Yes, we can.
