Telling the President

I saw this video last night on YouTube.  At the time I watched,  it had been viewed only 900 times.  It is over 22,400 now.  It will certainly go viral.

In August during a visit to his Chicago campaign headquarters  the President was told by a young female staffer that she had become engaged to another staffer the night before.  The President’s genuine reaction to the news, shown in this video, is priceless.

The President is often described as being cool and aloof, and perhaps he is to other politicians, journalists, lobbyists and businessmen, but that quality is certainly not evident in this video.

I was struck to see how young all the staffers are!

 

I recommend clicking on the YouTube logo at the bottom right of the video to view it in a larger format on that site.  Wow, what I wouldn’t give to have a smile like Barack Obama’s!  I wouldn’t mind being as handsome also.   😉

This post is not intended to be political  – although I admit to having voted for Obama in both 2008 and 2012.  It’s just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to see a man in such a powerful position react as he did.  Most politicians would have merely wished her well, and gone on to the next hand to shake.  No wonder those young people work so hard on his behalf.
