Plouffe gives his thoughts on being the campaign manager for Obama:
I’m a competitive person. Elections are nothing about doing well. You win or lose, and I love to win, and it feels absolutely terrible when you lose. We built something from scratch, he continues and we beat Hillary Clinton and John McCain. That’s like, uh, beating the L. A. Lakers and the Boston Celtics to win the championship. If he had lost, I’d have felt like I let the country down.
