Abstract:

No matter what your political stance, few political campaigns in our recent history have been as dramatic as that of President Barack Obama, who overcame a fierce primary battle, an ugly general election campaign, and, yes, that name, to become America's first African-American president. This film is a compelling account of that campaign, capturing off-the-cuff moments and strategy sessions with campaign adviser David Axelrod, communications director Robert Gibbs, and campaign manager David Plouffe--to the workers humping it on the ground. Most importantly for posterity, the film portrays the emotional nature of the campaign, not just because of the historic nature of his candidacy, but because of the inspirational qualities of the man himself.
