Chris Hayes' tribute to campaign workers

Chris Hayes just did a marvelous tribute to boots-on-the-ground campaign workers, local to national. Very well done, made me tear up on a Saturday morning. Hope it will be available on video for those who missed it!

1. Here, you can have some of the tissues I have before I use all of them. I have a friend

in Broward County, Florida that I called the morning after the election to express similar sentiments. Each time we talked she told me how rewarding it was for her, in her retirement, to be able to work at the local Obama headquarters, how impressed she was with the young people who had set up the field offices, and the dedicated workers. It was an emotional conversation. Chris's account of his brother's dedication is the kind of testimony that propels you beyond the rise of hate that you see after the reelection. There are so many positives that make you want to work even harder.

2. Yes, definitely watch

The best part was the guy getting the results while talking to the staff.

Very inspiring!

3. Yes, Yes

Chris and Melissa have become must watch on weekends. I can't stand the old Sunday news programs with their bloativating politicians and truly weak moderators. I always learn something from the discussions on UP and MHP Nerdland.

Chris' tribute to his brother and other campaign workers was great
