Julia Collins, a survivor of Hurricane Katrina, cries as as she listens to the Democratic presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama, speak at Tulane University on February the 7th, 2008 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Louisiana presidential primary is being held tomorrow, on February the 9th.

Barack Obama in New Orleans

Senator Barack Obama’s latest presidential campaign video focuses heavily on New Orleans. While neither the city nor Hurricane Katrina are explicitly mentioned, viewers are shown images of Mr. Obama with his sleeves rolled up, standing in front of debris and talking to folks whose homes had been demolished.

In the days after Hurricane Katrina hit in August 2005, Mr. Obama lent his hand to New Orleans evacuees in Houston. Mr. Obama is the only candidate still in the race to campaign in Louisiana. On Thursday, he addressed a crowd at Tulane University in New Orleans, where he pushed for F.E.M.A. restructuring and toured the city’s most heavily damaged Ninth Ward.
