    Pod Save America, the creators of Keepin it 1600, have a new podcast interview with Obama. Here's a link if anyone is interested. I'm going to listen to it as soon as I find my Kleenex

    I've read some people are saving it for noon tomorrow.

    I listened this morning. I sniffled a bit.

    There was an article in the New York Times about how Obama's administration handled the mail, and it's amazing. I don't see Trump continuing the 10LAD plan. I wouldn't be surprised if they just burned it all.

    President Obama just commuted Chelsea Manning's sentence. She'll now be released in May of this year, rather than in 2045.
    She's free.

    Chelsea Manning: Wikileaks source freed from prison
    US soldier Chelsea Manning has been released from prison after serving seven years for leaking hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables and military files to Wikileaks.

    A US Army spokesperson confirmed to the BBC that she had left Fort Leavenworth military prison in Kansas.

    Most of what remained of her 35-year sentence was commuted by then-US President Barack Obama in January.

    Her lawyer earlier said she was excited but likely "anxious".

    "She's ready to finally be able to live as the woman that she is," Nancy Hollander told the BBC. The 29-year-old soldier was born Bradley Manning.

    A day after she was sentenced to 35 years in prison in 2013, Manning said she had felt female since childhood and wanted to live as a woman called Chelsea.

    "For the first time, I can see a future for myself as Chelsea," she said in a statement last week ahead of her release. "I can imagine surviving and living as the person who I am and can finally be in the outside world."
    Don't look at the responses to tweets from news sources announcing her release. It's not healthy.
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    I'm glad she's free.

    But seeing this boosted to the top - my heart skipped a beat for happier, simpler times......

    I'm not crazy about the portraits that were unveiled today, but I'm not going to go on an epic rant against them like I'm sure is happening on right wing places. It's the tan suit all over again.

    But this made me laugh



    Also? Six years of his presidency on this forum and this thread is 57 pages. Trump for 13 months, 15 since the election: 293 page thread.

    I thought the one of Michelle was a very poor likeness, but Barack was incredibly gracious about it.

    I’m a big fan of Barack’s actually. In comparison, Michelle’s is a bit lifeless and looks like a generic fashion spread. It’s good... I just would hope for something bolder. But still-beautiful portraits. A+ to them for taking one last bold risk for history.

    We were happy then! What did we talk about for 8 long years? Was it the GOP Deathwatch?

    ^yes. And the war on women. Elections. Voter suppression. Shootings, mass and other kinds.
    And the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
    And we'll live a long life
