President Barack Obama delivered a stirring speech at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, saying he’d be offended if African-American voters don’t turn out and vote for Hillary Clinton in November.
“I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election,” Obama said. “You want to give me a good sendoff? Go vote.”
“If you care about our legacy, realize everything we stand for is at stake — all the progress we’ve made is at stake in this election,” Obama said. “My name may not be on the ballot, but our progress is on the ballot. Tolerance is on the ballot.”
