How’s the wife, the kids? From the pool report on the meeting between President Obama and Afghanistan President Karzai. One POTUS aside reflects his state of mind. From pool reports.
POTUS asked, “How’s your family?” Karzai said “Good” and a bit more.
Karzai told POTUS his remarks at the Afghanistan session “set the tone right for the whole meeting.” POTUS said he appreciated it . . . and added, “That was my goal. Every once in a while, I do things right” . . . and Karzai replied, “I meant it.”
He asked about POTUS’s departure and Obama said he’d fly out at 7:30. Karzai said he’d be longer, until about 9.
