Obama pops in halfway to recite a passage from George Washington’s farewell tackle: “Though, in reviewing the incidents of my administration, I’m unconscious of intentional error, I’m nonetheless too smart of my defects to not assume it possible that I’ll have dedicated many errors.”

The significance right here, past it being one other reminder of Obama’s absence [tear] is that Miranda was partly motivated to put in writing Hamilton after performing “Alexander Hamilton” on the White House for Obama in 2009.
