A relaxed and at times impassioned President Obama on Wednesday spoke at a Boston fundraiser, getting the crowd fired up when reiterating his call to revise the tax code and rolling back tax cuts for the country's wealthiest Americans. He also ran down a list of his administration's accomplishments, including finding and killing Osama bin Laden.

Obama looked back fondly at the energy of his first presidential campaign. "Now, a few things have changed since that time. ... I'm a little bit grayer, got a few dings and dents," Obama said. "But all of us can still remember that night in Grant Park. The excitement in the streets, the sense of possibility in the air." Fast foward to 4:50 to hear him talk about it.
