Obama's campaign team distributed on Thursday, Nov 8 a YouTube video of the President, where Obama turned teary-eyed while delivering an emotional tribute to his team at his Chicago headquarters, hours after he won re-election to a second term.
"What you guys have done, means the work that I am doing is important, I am really proud of that, I am really proud of all of you," Obama said with tears in his eyes. "I am absolutely confident that all of you are going to do just amazing things in your lives," Obama said, standing alone at a microphone with a poster of his slogan "Forward!" behind him on the wall.
"What Bobby Kennedy called the ripples of hope that come out when you throw a stone in a lake, that is going to be you," Obama said, his voice still hoarse from days of campaigning.
The YouTube video was posted on BarackObama.com and was distributed by campaign staff on Twitter and email. The YouTube video has gone viral as it is one of the rarest moments when Obama was seen displaying raw emotion.
But, we would say, Obama looks best when he flashes his signature smile to cheering crowd.
