Obama Campaign Releases New Footage From The Road We’ve Traveled Campaign Documentary


Supporters of President Obama‘s reelection campaign, and even non-fans like former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, now have an even better look at the soon-to-be-released (March 15) The Road We’ve Traveled, a 17 minute campaign documentary by Academy Award™-winning director Davis Guggenheim. The campaign has released a new trailer for the film, but given its content, you might not hear Mitt Romney cracking wise about this one.

The trailer, entitled “Tough Decisions,” focuses on the events surrounding the successful mission to kill Osama bin Laden. The spot features narration by Tom Hanks, plus the requisite evocative music and still footage.

It also features a brief clip of former President Bill Clinton, who says “He took the harder and more honorable path. When I saw what had happened, I thought to myself, I hope that’s the call I would have made.”

Romney, you may recall, asserted that “any president” would have done what President Obama did and greenlit the raid into Pakistan, even though in 20007, he told reporters that he opposed such a raid.

Here’s the clip, from Obama For America, followed by the campaign’s press release:
