Metro USA (Boston) - - FRONT PAGE -

For­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama on Mon­day made his first ma­jor ap­pear­ance since leav­ing of­fice, hav­ing cho­sen Chicago, the city where his po­lit­i­cal ca­reer started, to emerge from a three-month hia­tus from the pub­lic eye. In a panel dis­cus­sion at the Univer­sity of Chicago, where Obama once taught con­sti­tu­tional law, the 44th pres­i­dent told the au­di­ence that he had been spend­ing a lot of time think­ing about what’s next for him. “The sin­gle most im­por­tant thing I can do is to help in any way I can pre­pare the next gen­er­a­tion to take up the ba­ton and to take their own crack at chang­ing the world,” he said.
