Barack Obama Documentary 'Road We Traveled' – Opinion And Full Video

Last night, the Obama campaign screened the new 17-minute documentary on President Obama entitled "The Road We've Traveled." The documentary, produced by Davis Guggenheim (director of Waiting for Superman and "An Inconvinient Truth"), showed at more than 300 campaign screenings nationwide, and streamed live on BarackObama.com. 

The production quality of the documentary (ad) was very high. Tom Hanks narrated and interviewees include Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel, among others.

Republicans are criticizing the video for ingoring the realities of Obama's record. GOP press person, Kirsten Kukowski, said "Unfortunately Americans feel Obama's accomplishments each and every day after President Obama led our country to higher unemployment, record debt, and higher gas prices."

Weigh in: Who was the Obama documentary targeted towards? Do you think the documentary is effective at convincing undecided voters to vote for Obama? Is it accurate?
