President Barack Obama officially announced his re-election bid Monday, unveiling a video that seeks to capture some of the initial grassroots enthusiasm over his candidacy and emphasizing that much work is left to be done.

"I can't not be involved," says one man. "There's just too much that is fundamentally important right now that's going on."

"There are so many things that are still on the table that need to be addressed, and we want them to be addressed by President Obama," a woman adds.

Obama does not appear in the 2 minute spot.
