President Obama appears to get choked up in a video showing him speaking to campaign staffers about what they will accomplish in the future.
“You are so much better than I was, in so many ways. You’re smarter, you’re better organized and you’re more effective,” he tells staffers.
“I’m absolutely confident that all of you are going to do just amazing things in your lives.”
The president appears to wipe away a tear when talking about what lies ahead for his team.
“What you guys have done means that the work that I’m doing is important. And I’m really proud of that. I’m really proud of all of you.”
In the video, apparently recorded on Wednesday, one day after he was reelected, Obama calls his campaign staff the source of his inspiration.
“The most important thing you need to know is that your journey is just beginning. You’re just starting. And whatever good we do in the next four years will pale in comparison to what you guys end up accomplishing for years and years to come.”
