President Obama tears up thanking campaign volunteers

The Obama campaign released a video of President Obama stopping at his Chicago campaign HQ to thank volunteers -- and tearing up as he tells them, "I'm really proud of all of you."

He told the campaign volunteers he marveled at their skills, telling them he moved to Chicago "with this vague inkling of making a difference," but that his team outsmarts him and is better organized than he was at their age.

"I'm absolutely confident that all of you are going to do just amazing things in your lives," he said.
