Obama’s Tears Will Cure All Your Cynicism Today

|

We interrupt this morning’s truly meaningful celebrity news (hi, Lindsay Lohan!) to bring you this touching moment that might just make you stand up a little taller and work a little harder today. Newly re-elected President Barack Obama gave a speech to young volunteers at his Chicago headquarters about how their hard work made everything he did meaningful. And he turned on the waterworks like we’ve never seen him do before. It’s kind of like that one time we saw our dads cry. We dare you not to feel some stirring of hope as you watch it. And then you can go back to thinking about Kirstie Alley‘s weird nonsexual relationship with John Travolta.
