Obama Visits Washington Post
Updated 4:58 p.m.
The New York Times' Helene Cooper files a memorable pool report on President-elect Barack Obama's visit to The Washington Post, where he met with members of the editorial board and national political staff, as first reported by The Fix.
After three and a half hours at his transition office, PEOTUS obama took another 6 minute ride through washington, arriving at 157 pm at the nondescript soviet-style building at 15th and L street that houses the washington post.
Around 100 people--Post reporters perhaps?--awaited PEOTUS's arrival, cheering and bobbing their coffee cups.
Pool is holding in a van outside, while Mr obama does his washington post interview, and will exercise enormous restraint by ending report before saying what really thinks about this turn of events.

After the interview, Obama visited The Post's newsroom, reports The Post's David Nakamura. You can read his report here. While Obama was at The Post, a crowd of roughly 500 gathered outside the building; they cheered as his motorcade departed, taking him back to the transition office.
Howie Kurtz has the full story on the visit here.
