President Obama Sheds Tears Thanking His Campaign Staff

On Wednesday night, our newly re-elected President Barack Obama paid a surprise visit to volunteers at his Chicago campaign headquarters to thank the staff their for all their dedication and hard work. “It’s not that you guys actually remind me of myself,” he tells the group, “it’s the fact that you are so much better than I was.”

In this video, the president appears more like a proud father than a victorious politician. Wiping tears from his eyes, he said: “I’m really proud of all of you… this is just the beginning.”
