Pallasch Pool Report on Obama arriving at his Kenwood home:

Bit of a delay dropping the Prez at his house as he stopped on the way home and jumped out of the car to shake hands with eight children cheering him near his house. They were among several groups of fans gathered in his neighborhood to cheer.

He was dropped home at 10:20.
