Good Idea/Bad Idea? Presidential Tears
Are you surprised at my tears, sir? Strong men also cry.
A video of President Barack Obama thanking his campaign staff went viral on Friday. The reason? It featured the reelected president welling up as he reminisced about his humble beginnings in Chicago.
After a long, hard-fought campaign — undoubtedly the president's last — it's hard to begrudge the man a few wistful tears.
But not everybody thinks Obama is genuine, even in this YouTube video of an unguarded moment in front of close-knit young staffers.
We've had a lot of viral moments in this campaign, and as it closes, this one might be the most surprising.
So we put it to you: what do you think of the president's tears?
