President Barack Obama made a surprise visit to the White House briefing
room Friday to help mark Robert Gibbs' last day as the president's press
Obama returned a tie to Gibbs he had borrowed to wear while delivering the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston.
"You couldn't ask for anybody better in the foxhole with you," Obama said. "I couldn't have a better friend at the podium each and every day."
