Product Description

A look at Barack Obama's rise from Illinois senator to the United States' first African-American president.

Amazon.com

Correspondent Steve Kroft hosts this 60 Minutes special documenting Barack Obama's path to the presidency. The two programs include The 44th President, from November 16th, 2008, and The Road to the White House, from December 28th, 2008. The opening segment features the President-elect's first post-election interview, in which he discusses his plans for the days ahead, but takes pains to avoid too many specifics. When Kroft asks about the future of General Motors, for instance, Obama replies, "Let's see how this thing plays out." On the subject of cabinet appointments, he speaks in general terms, smiles, and then says, "Beyond that, you're not getting any more out of me, Steve." At the midway point, Michelle Obama joins in to talk about their personal goals. For their children, they say they’re striving to maintain normalcy, though her husband acknowledges that "the loss of anonymity" is an unavoidable drawback. (Kroft's only silly question: "Do you have a transition team for the dog?"). The second episode begins as the former senator lays the groundwork for candidacy and ends with his victory speech in Chicago. If the previous program focuses primarily on positives, the second touches on concerns that threatened to curtail Obama's rise, like his association with Pastor Jeremiah Wright. The feature "What You Haven't Seen" offers never-before-seen material from seven different stories, while "Major Speeches" presents six key public appearances, notably his declaration, inaugural address, and "A More Perfect Union," in which he talks about race in America, including the Wright controversy. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

By [KNDY] Dennis A. Amith TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 8, 2009
President Barack Obama. From his beginning as a Senator from Illinois to his road to the White House and to the monumental day of his inauguration, only one show and one correspondent was granted exclusive access to the Senator and that was "60 Minutes" and correspondent Steve Kroft.

"60 Minutes Presents Obama: All Access - Barack Obama's Road To The White House" is a wonderful glimpse into the personal and professional life of Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their two daughters.

The DVD features the following:

* The 44th President (November 16, 2008) - This 38-minute post-election interview with President Obama goes into the economy, automobile industry, bail-out, his Washington apartment and getting a family dog and his mother-in-law. Also, interesting insight from President Obama in regards to having an NCAA Football playoff system. But also, an interview with first lady Michelle Obama and reflecting on the past with their relationship. A very good interview featuring a confident, calm but also anxious to get to work President.
* The Road to the White House (December 28, 2008) - This 34-minute interview features President Barack Obama's road to the White House. Exclusive footage given to "60 Minutes" of Obama's two year audition to the American people and clips from past interviews with then Senator Obama and his wife Michelle. A very well done compilation of two years of footage from "60 Minutes" showcasing the challenges, the problems but also the high notes of his campaign.
* What You Haven't Seen - Steve Kroft explains that there were so much footage that did not make it on the air and thus with the DVD, they included 14-minutes of footage.

This DVD contains most of two years worth of CBS News' "60 Minutes" stories on Barack Obama.

Coverage includes his 2004 kenynote address to the Democratic National Convention in Boston through his speech on electon night after becoming the President-elect..

In addition to that, the biggest and best of his major speeches from 2004 through November 2008 are included.

In addition, there is "never before seen" stuff (about 15 minutes worth) that was cut from the various "60 Minutes" stories on Obama.

Read another review here by Dennis Amith. It goes into better detail (no need for me to be overly redundant).

My only disappointment with this DVD is that this is in standard definition 4:3, rather than 16:9 ratio.

"60 Minutes" is broadcast in HD so even though this isn't a blu-ray disc, it still could have been in widescreen.

Nevertheless, this is a minor complaint, I otherwise highly recommend this DVD.

I have purchased and viewed every Obama DVD available on Amazon. This one by far is the one to get as a historical reference and as a collectors piece. 60 Minutes followed Obama from before he anncounced his candadicy all the way thru the inauguration. They had unprecedented access to our new President and the DVD is full of in-depth interviews and great footage. This DVD is incredible and CBS/60 Minutes did a fantastic job.
GObama!

I purchased this item for friends who have been working as missionaries in Nigeria and are not able to access news from the USA. This DVD of "60 Minutes" interviews with Obama and the historic speeches up to and including his inauguration as our 44th President is well presented and will give them a chance to see "history in the making".

Enjoyed seeing some behind the scenes with the newly elected president. He is very intelligent, charismatic, and really cares about his family and this country.
