As Barack Obama prepares to turn the White House over to Donald Trump, The New York Times is inviting readers to reflect on what the Obama presidency has meant to them:
“President Obama leaves office on Jan. 20 after eight years. We invite you to reflect on his successes and failures, and how you will remember him.
Please keep your submission brief — no more than 200 words. The deadline is Thursday, Jan. 5, at 10 a.m., Eastern time. We plan to publish a sampling on Sunday, Jan. 8. Email: email@example.com
(Please put “legacy” in the subject line.)”
We will see if the Times actually publishes any submissions outlining some of Obama’s many failures.
