The president entered the OFA campaign headquarters at around 2 p.m. Pool was not admitted, but a source in the room said the president was greeted by a “big standing O” and a lot of applause. People climbed on top of desks to get a look at him.


Obama thanked the staff and volunteers for their work, the source said. Obama said he derives a lot of his motivation and inspiration from the work they do each day. He then circled the office shaking hands with the staff.


The visit is now stretching beyond a half hour in length . . .
