Obama wipes away tears while speaking to staff
WASHINGTON (AP) - November 8, 2012 (WPVI) -- In a new video released by his campaign, President Barack Obama wipes away tears as he thanks members of his campaign staff and volunteers.
Obama's campaign released a five-minute video of the president's address Wednesday to members of his staff at his Chicago headquarters. The short speech came a day after he won re-election.
The president talks about his work as a community organizer in Chicago and tells staffers and volunteers that they will do "amazing things" in their lives.
Obama becomes emotional when he says that even before the election results, he felt the work he had done "had come full circle." He tells staff members that he is proud of the work they did, then pauses to wipe away tears.
