As promised, Politico released Part II of their video Year in Review series this morning. The same reporters are involved — Jeanne Cummings, Mike Allen, Kenneth Vogel, Nia-Malika Henderson and Patrick Gavin.

Topics addressed include Town Hall Meetings (watch for the man in a Hawaiian shirt getting irate), Obama’s Pulitzer, the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and more.

The video touches on Obama’s perceived larger-than-life persona, with Allen jokingly adding, “Someone told me he should award himself the National Medal of Freedom and get it over with.”
