You don’t see the president crying very often, but there’s a first time for every time. President Obama broke down during a speech to supporters, crying as he reminisced about his days as a community organizer.
President Obama was crying. Not choked up, not somewhat emotional. He was crying. It was a startling sight — after years of watching the man known for his coolness under pressure, for his analytic detachment — to see him suddenly wearing his heart on his rolled up sleeve.
What happened? What made the president — “No Drama Obama,” “President Spock” — suddenly crack?
It happened Wednesday, the day after he won re-election, when he stood before the staff at his Chicago campaign headquarters to thank them for the work that helped make his victory possible. “What you guys have done,” he said, “means that the work that I’m doing is important.” His right index finger quickly wiped away tears as they streamed down his cheek.
