This will be very brief.

Tonight, right now, while speaking in Des Moines, IA about how his campaign started there in a small office right behind where he was speaking, the President became overwhelmed with emotion and tears started to form in his eyes.  It was an incredibly human moment that showed just how much all of our work and his has meant.  It made me start to well up as well.  Sleep well, Mr. President, because we have your back.

I can't wait for tomorrow.  I can't wait to defeat the republicans.  Let's get out there and vote and give this President four more years that he deserves.

9:04 PM PT: Here is only link I have so far.  You must fast forward to about the 41 minute mark (I know) to hear first lady start speaking.  Video won't show much before that except for a little Springsteen, which is always awesome. has it right now or so does his youtube channel.  Again, 41 minute mark is where the First Lady starts speaking.

9:20 PM PT: One last update:  Hard to see in this video the tears but they were there and he was wiping them away.  You can really tell when he is speaking around the 53:30 mark.  Let's go win this tomorrow!!!!

9:47 PM PT: Here is better link on c-span provide by cotterperson - thank you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
