|Starting before he became a presidential candidate, 60 Minutes has been tracking the rise of Barack Obama, with behind-the-scenes access unparalleled by any other news organization. The personal and the public sides of the president-elect come to life in a fascinating DVD from America's Number One television news magazine.|
60 Minutes Presents Obama: All Access relives memorable moments from CBS News coverage of this extraordinary political figure...electrifying scenes already seen around the world, and quiet moments seen only on 60 Minutes. This disc, with more than three hours of material, also includes never-before-seen material from exclusive 60 Minutes interviews.
The DVD is hosted by CBS News correspondent Steve Kroft, who has followed Mr. Obama's road to the White House since early 2007. Viewers will share extraordinary access to the Senator, the candidate, and the president-elect. Though the disc will include the very best of what 60 Minutes has already broadcast about Barack Obama, it also has revealing interviews that have never been shown before.
In addition to the 60 Minutes reporting, this special video includes the most powerful public appearances of the Obama campaign. Finally, 60 Minutes Presents Obama: All Access will end at the beginning -- the beginning of the Barack Obama Administration -- with a presentation of the entire Inaugural Address of the 44th President of the United States.
Editor's NoteWith his inspiring speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, Barack Obama rose from being a political unknown to a contender for the highest office in the land: President of the United States of America. His brilliantly fought campaign in 2008--and inspiring message of change--led him to prevail in November, becoming the first black man elected President. This program from America's premiere newsmagazine, 60 MINUTES, charts President Obama's political career and unprecedented rise in the national consciousness.
