President Obama Wants to Hear WHAT?

President Obama spoke in New Orleans on August 27th, 2015. Check out what he wants to do when he leaves office. Here’s the beginning of his speech:

President Obama: “Hello, everybody! Where y’at? It is good to be back in the Big Easy. And this is the weather in August all the time, right? As soon as I land in New Orleans, the first thing I do is get hungry. When I was here with the family a few years ago, I had a shrimp po-boy at Parkway Bakery and Tavern. I still remember it — that’s how good it was. And one day, after I leave office, maybe I’ll finally hear Rebirth at the Maple Leaf on Tuesday night. I’ll get a chance to “see the Mardi Gras,” and somebody will tell me what’s Carnival for. But right now, I just go to meetings.”
