About three and a half minutes into this video of Obama addressing his campaign staff, he starts getting a little bit weepy. Some people will no doubt interpret this as political theatrics. Others as genuine emotion and gratitude.
I, however, choose to take this as a signal to House Speaker John Boehner that he is willing to meet him half way…
"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. What you guys accomplished will go on in the annals of history. People will read about it and people will marvel about it. But the most important thing you need to know is that your journey is just beginning. You're just starting. Whatever good we do over the next four years will pale in comparison to what you guys end up accomplishing for years and years to come."
Ah, you see? He's admitting that his second term will be inconsequential. Why didn't we listen to you, Mitt?!?!
