President Obama seems to be a bit more emotional than usual since his victory Tuesday evening. In a speech to his campaign workers following the election, the president teared up a little. Here’s a look.

“What you guys have done means that the work I am doing is approved... I’m proud of all of you. And um...”

A blogger on Dr. Jays.com says President Obama was speaking to a group of young volunteers about his time as a community organizer in Chicago as a young man. He commended the group for being “smarter,” “better organized,” and “more effective,” than he was. The blogger says the president’s emotion was slightly out of character.

“This is ‘no-drama’ Obama. The man who at times has seemed aloof, overly-intellectual, and always in control. But here he is, clearly exhausted after days of all-night election returns and victory speeches, after months of grueling and vicious campaigning for the last elected office he will ever hold, and after four years of watching his dreams of a more united States crumble.”

According to ABC News the video offers a rare glimpse of Mr. Obama’s raw emotion. During the first four years of his presidency, Obama has never been seen publicly crying. ABC News says the president’s top aides say Mr. Obama considers this victory to be more meaningful because...

“... it wasn’t just hopes and rhetoric, it was actually four years of the difficult grueling process of governance and still these volunteers turned out and obviously voters did as well.”

But Mr. Obama’s campaign team doesn't want to take full credit for the president’s victory. The New York Times says the campaign wants Mr. Obama’s win to be attributed to the president’s work and his policies. A senior adviser to the president said...

“We have a remarkable staff and campaign, the reason that those people got involved is because they believed in Barack Obama — it was a relationship between them and our candidate.”

Sky News reports President Obama will make his first post-election address to the nation Friday afternoon.
