It was a busy week in politics.
On Tuesday, President Barack Obama delivered a farewell address to the nation. And the next day, President-elect Donald Trump held his first press conference since July.
Political analyst Dr. Christopher Whitt begins his conversation with Jay Pearce by sharing his impressions on Obama's message as he prepares to leave the White House after eight years.
Whitt is chair of the political science department at Augustana College in Rock Island.
