President Obama made one final campaign stop Monday night in Des Moines, Iowa--the same place where he launched his first campaign for the presidency--giving an emotional goodbye speech to the campaign trail before returning to the White House to watch election returns come in. "This is where our movement for change began," Obama told the a crowd of 20,000 supporters near the State Capitol. Addressing the group, members of which were holding signs reading "Forward" and "Finish what we started," Obama appeared to tear up in the 32-minute address. Win or lose, this is the end of Obama's campaigning. He might miss it just a little bit, after all.
