“Today, we are filing papers to launch our 2012 campaign. We’re doing this now because the politics we believe in does not start with expensive TV ads or extravaganzas, but with you — with people organizing block-by-block, talking to neighbors, co-workers, and friends. And that kind of campaign takes time to build. So even though I’m focused on the job you elected me to do, and the race may not reach full speed for a year or more, the work of laying the foundation for our campaign must start today. … This will be my final campaign, at least as a candidate. But the cause of making a lasting difference for our families, our communities, and our country has never been about one person. And it will succeed only if we work together.”
Below is the launch video — ‘It Begins With Us’ — featuring snippets of interviews with grassroots supporters around the country, talking about why they have to get involved and not leave it up to chance.
And just for the record, the logo is ‘2012,’ with the rainbow/rising sun in the ‘0.’
