Obama heads to Camp David after best week ‘in a long damn time’

After signing healthcare reform into law, agreeing to a new nuclear
arms reduction treaty and moving forward with financial reform,
President Barack Obama will spend the weekend at the presidential
retreat at Camp David, Md.

And top White House aides say, “He knows he has” earned it.


“Best week we’ve had in a long damn time,” one senior administration official told The Hill.

Aides
in the West Wing are walking with a noticeable bounce in their step now
that the protracted and brutal healtcare debate is behind them.

As Congress prepares to leave town for its Easter recess, Obama
will take a quick break at Camp David before hitting the road again to
try and keep the momentum he established with his healthcare victory.

Obama has events scheduled in Maine and North Carolina next week to talk about healthcare and the economy, respectively.
