President Obama went all Boehner on everyone while thanking his staff at campaign headquarters in Chicago Wednesday.
The president wept while telling the assembled authors of the nastiest campaign in history how proud he was of them.
Campaign Manager Jim Messina sent the video out to supporters Thursday evening because, he said, “It’s a message every single person who helped build this campaign deserves to see. He wasn’t just talking to those of us in the office — he was talking to all of you.”
If you’re having trouble getting through it, the weepiness begins at 3:25.
One intriguing note – the Obama campaign is apparently still collecting email addresses. The link provided by Messina in his email takes you to a page with the video on it that asks you to provide your name and email address, as well as the email addresses of up to ten people you want to share the video with.
