It's a longstanding tradition for the outgoing president to write a letter for the incoming president and leave it in the Oval Office for when the new president arrives. The letters that President Clinton and President George W. Bush left their successors were made public for the first time just this morning.
The ChicagoNow blogging community took a shot at what President Obama might have written in his letter to President Trump (a few of the letters go in a slightly different direction).
