Barack Obama's campaign has released the trailer for its 17-minute documentary, titled "The Road We've Traveled." The film, which will be available on March 15, stars Vice President Joe Biden, former chief of staff and Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, top advisor David Axelrod, and Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, with actor Tom Hanks narrating and Davis Guggenheim, of An Inconvenient Truth and Waiting for "Superman" fame, directing. Watch the trailer below:

The trailer focuses on what will likely be the Obama campaign's major selling points for the fall: the severity of the economic crisis (before the president took office), Obamacare, the auto bailout, and the killing of Osama bin Laden. In the trailer, Warren provides a direct appeal to the swing states and swing voters in the Midwest. "If the auto industry goes down, what happens to America's manufacturing base? What happens to jobs in America?" Warren asks. "What happens to the whole Midwest?"
