(CNN) – President Barack Obama made the brief drive to the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in Washington Thursday to thank staff members there for their work on his re-election effort.
Obama – who has no campaign events scheduled for Thursday – just finished a three-day swing through Iowa, where he hammered his Republican opponent Mitt Romney for everything from his stance on wind energy to his position on Medicare.
