President Obama Cries While Thanking Campaign Staff


For a guy who won the election, President Obama has been surprisingly weepy this week. First he shed a few tears at his final campaign stop in Iowa, and now the Obama team has released video of the president breaking down while talking with campaign staffers. “Even before last night’s results, I felt that the work that I had done in running for office had come full circle,” he said, with tears rolling down his cheeks. “Because what you guys have done means that the work that I am doing is important. And I’m really proud of that. I’m really proud of all of you.” It’s a sweet moment, and all this public crying may help Obama bond with John Boehner.
