U.S president Barack Obama Cried while talking to his Campaign staff after he was re-elected as US president.

Obama visited his campaign headquarters in the Prudential Building near Lake Michigan before returning to Washington, the day after his re-election victory. Wearing a white dress shirt, with the top button undone and his silver tie a bit loosened, Obama stood at a microphone in front of two blue signs with his campaign slogan "Forward."

He told the assembled staff, most of whom were young people in their 20s and 30s, that their work organizing his vast ground operation reminded him of his time as a community organizer in Chicago when he was their age.

"What you guys have done, means the work that I am doing is important, I am really proud of that, I am really proud of all of you," Barack Obama said before pausing as tears welled up and dampened his cheek.

It is very Rare scene. Because, normally Obama is a cool guy who won't show any emotion in public.
