Subject: Pool Report #2
Departure for Chicago
First, a footnote to Pool Report #1 - the pool entered the Oval Office at 10:22 and departed at 10:31.
Moving on to the departure: The president exited the Oval at 11:11, made it as far as the playground equipment and spun on his heels and returned to his office. Thirty seconds later, he emerged again, this time holding aloft his cellphone, proving that even the Leader of the Free World can leave home without his phone. He waved several times as he made his way to Marine One. He was followed by Valerie Jarrett, Eric Schultz and personal aide Joe Paulsen.
Liftoff - and handoff to Travel Pool -- was at 11:16.
