Three years ago today, Barack Obama was elected President of the United States.
And right around this time, he stepped onstage in Chicago to address the American people for the first time as President-elect.
A lot has happened since that night in Grant Park.
But to win in 2012, we'll need a grassroots campaign that's even stronger than the last, and we can't afford to wait to get started.
Watch the video we put together highlighting election night 2008 and the last three years, and then commit to be a volunteer for 2012.
Here's what the President said three years ago tonight:
"Even as we celebrate tonight, we know the challenges that tomorrow will bring are the greatest of our lifetime. ... The road ahead will be long; our climb will be steep; we may not get there in one year or even in one term. But, America, I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you, we as a people will get there. ... but there's so much more to do."
Everyone should be proud of what we've accomplished since then, but as the President said, there's so much more to do. What happens on November 6th, 2012, is up to us.
Commit to volunteer:
Obama for America
