Just hours after heavy rains cut short the much-anticipated major league debut of Washington Nationals starting pitcher Lucas Giolito, President Obama was granted near-perfect conditions for his sun-drenched South Lawn departure to Ottawa. At 8:38 a.m., President Obama walked out of the residence in a dark suit, white shirt and blue tie. He gave a brief wave to the pool, and did not acknowledge a shouted question about the airport bombing in Istanbul, Turkey.

POTUS returned the saluted a Marine waiting at the helicopter's door, then shook hands with both crew members when he boarded. The front door was closed at 8:40 a.m., and Marine One lifted off at 8:42 a.m. Joined by its usual pair of accompanying helicopters, Marine One disappeared into a powder blue sky as it banked left en route to Joint Base Andrews at 8:44 a.m.

Per the White House, here are the aides who boarded the executive helicopter after Obama, all carrying bags:

Brian Deese

Josh Earnest

Ambassador Susan Rice

Amy Pope

Joe Paulsen

Your in-town pooler invites you all back this evening for today's South Lawn doubleheader. Now handing off to the out-of-town pool.
