By the People: The Election of Barack Obama is a documentary that tracks President Obama’s progress from being a long-shot candidate, to front-runner in the 2008 presidential race, to President of the United States of America.

The documentary is a roller-coaster ride that includes all the upsets, campaign strategies, victories, all seen from within the Obama campaign.

The Noble Peace Prize 2009 citation reads,” The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.
