Cam­paign doc­u­men­tary touts Obama’s first term

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

Pres­i­dent Obama’s re-elec­tion cam­paign plans to re­lease a 17minute doc­u­men­tary next week about his time in the Oval Of­fice.

Cam­paign man­ager Jim Messina says the doc­u­men­tary was di­rected by Davis Guggen­heim, whose cred­its in­clude the Academy Award­win­ning “An In­con­ve­nient Truth,” about Al Gore’s glob­al­warm­ing cam­paign.

Mr. Messina says the doc­u­men­tary will “put into per­spec­tive the enor­mous chal­lenges that the na­tion faced when the pres­i­dent took of­fice and the strides we’ve made to­gether.”

Cam­paigns fre­quently re­lease doc­u­men­tary films to reach vot­ers and am­plify the nar­ra­tive of a can­di­date’s mes­sage. In 1992, TV pro­duc­ers Harry Thoma­son and Linda Blood­worth-thoma­son helped cre­ate “The Man From Hope,” a cam­paign bi­og­ra­phy of Bill Clin­ton.
