Newly re-elected President Barack Obama addressed his campaign staff in his Chicago headquarters on Wednesday and as he started talking about his youth as a community organizer, he began to tear up.
The President’s campaign manager Jim Messina, sent a note to supporters. President Obama’s speech on Tuesday night he said, “The best campaign team and volunteers in the history of politics.”
“So many times in this election, this campaign was counted out,’ said Messina. “They said our supporters wouldn’t turn out, and we’d never see the kind of voter participation we saw in 2008. They said we’d be buried in money and special-interest influence. And they said that no campaign could overcome the political headwinds we faced.”
