President Obama gives emotional thank you to his volunteers

President Obama stopped by his Chicago campaign HQ yesterday to thank his supporters for all their hard work and wish them well on their next moves.

“I am absolutely confident that all of you are going to do amazing things in your lives,” he told them.

Then, after marveling at the volunteers’ enthusiasm for the democratic process and their determination to help their fellow Americans, Obama got misty, saying, “Even before last night’s results, I felt that the work I had done in running for office had come full circle.”

“Because what you guys have done means that the work I am doing is important. And I’m really proud of that. I’m really proud of you.” The volunteers began cheering as the president paused to wipe away tears. “What you guys have accomplished will go in the annals of history.”
