| No Comments

WASHINGTON--The Obama for America campaign today released a preview of a 17-minute documentary-style film about the Obama presidency which includes interviews with key Chicago figures: Rahm Emanuel, who was Obama's former chief of staff, David Axelrod, his top strategist, economic advisor Austan Goolsbee and First Lady Michelle.

From OFA: "Obama for America today released the trailer for a new documentary by award-winning director Davis Guggenheim titled the "Road We've Traveled". The documentary is narrated by Tom Hanks and includes appearances by Vice President Joe Biden, First Lady Michelle Obama, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Elizabeth Warren and others. The film is an opportunity to put into perspective the challenges the country faced when President Obama took office, the tough decisions he made in the face of those challenges and the progress we've made in rebuilding an economy that's meant to last and strengthening and securing our nation.

"Supporters are encouraged to sign up, building our online and on the ground support. They will be able to attend premieres of the documentary on March 15 at Obama for America field offices across the country. Following the premiere, senior strategist David Axelrod will be taking Q&A from supporters using Adobe Connect."
