Obama arrives aboard Air Force One at Watertown Regional Airport in Watertown, South DakotaBy Jeff Mason WATERTOWN, S.D. (Reuters) – President Barack Obama crossed the last state off his presidential bucket list on Friday with a stop in South Dakota, the final of the 50 U.S. states he has visited since taking office in 2009. Fresh from a trip to Oregon, where he advocated for a trade agreement with Asian countries during a speech at Nike Inc’s headquarters, Obama made a stop in Watertown, South Dakota, to give a commencement address at Lake Area Technical Institute, considered one of the top community colleges in the nation. Obama has made boosting community colleges one of his key domestic policy priorities. “We knew he was saving the best for last,” said South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard ahead of Obama’s remarks.
