Home sweet home.

President Obama spent last night at his Kenwood house. I bet it felt good to sleep in his own bed. I hear that traffic in that area is badly snarled.

President Barack Obama delighted in the prospect of sleeping in his own bed Friday night, after his Kenwood neighborhood was securely tucked in by the police and Secret Service.

Obama arrived in Chicago about 4:30 p.m. for three campaign fundraisers, traveling without the first lady and their daughters. He planned to stay overnight at his house for the first time in more than a year.

"He told me he … might even make himself breakfast in the morning," said White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest, adding that the president likely would visit with old friends before heading back to Washington on Saturday.
