The sky’s the limit for Errol Barnett — that is, as long as he’s eaten breakfast.

“Egg whites every morning — that’s a staple,” the Washington-based CBS correspondent says. “You never know how long your day will be or where you’ll end up.

“So long as I’ve had breakfast, I can go anywhere, do anything.”

Barnett moved from England to Phoenix, Ariz., when he was 10. Since landing in the nation’s capital, he says he’s been surprised by how much he loves it, and feels right at home with the “overabundance of nerds.”

“It’s nice to be around them.”

An avid runner, Barnett lifts weights when he’s not traveling with the president. And he does his best to avoid sweets.

Any Jelly Belly flavor will do. Well, except one.

“Popcorn — that’s always a disturbing surprise to me.”
