WASHINGTON--Reggie Love, President Obama's "body man" or personal assistant, is leaving the White House. After joining the staff of then Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, Love went on to become the man with Obama all the time and everywhere--in the presidential campaign and in the White House. He is leaving to attend business school--Wharton at the University of Pennsylvania--full time.
Love, who played basketball and football at Duke, is a constant basketball partner for Obama.
He gave an interview to ABC NEWS/ESPN about being up close with the president--even when he is flossing.
FROM ABC NEWS/ESPN: "If he had it his way, I think he'd floss in private," Love said, "...I think the fact that he was comfortable with me is probably a product of, you know, he's beaten down. I've been around for so long."
"Tune in Tuesday to "World News with Diane Sawyer" at 6:30 p.m. ET and "Nightline" at 11:35 p.m. ET for Rachel Nichol's interview with Reggie Love."
