The film that Tom Hanks and Davis Guggenheim made for Barack Obama’s reelection campaign earlier this year was played at the DNC tonight. Actually it was an edited version of The Road We’ve Traveled that the delegates in Charlotte saw. Trimmed down from its original 17-minutes to 7-minutes, the wide ranging video that the Oscar winner narrated and the documentarian directed tonight had some new footage weaved in and became a focused testimony to Obama’s commitment to America’s armed forces and veterans. The Sacred Trust video was put together by NYC political consultants Siegel Strategies and Mooney Marketing. After the shorten and revised video was played, retired Admiral and campaign co-chair John Nathan took the podium, with almost two dozen veterans behind him, to praise the administration’s efforts for America’s returning and wounded soldiers.
