President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution “just a piece of parchment."

“Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” said Obama. “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.”

“It has no power on its own,” he went on. “We the people give it power. We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge…”

He later said that as he steps down from the presidency, he plans to play an active role in "the most important office in a democracy: citizen." 

Many of his critics would argue that his statement on the Constitution alone sums up his legacy.
