I just have one other thing to add. We made a number of personnel announcements today. There is going to be an incredible team that Denis will help lead. But I thought I’d take the occasion to just embarrass somebody. Some of you may know that today is David Plouffe’s last day in the White House. (Laughter.) I had to hide this in the end of my remarks because I knew he wouldn’t want me to bring it up. So we had some secret squirrel stuff going on here to -- (laughter) -- avoid him thinking that we were going to talk about him.
But as many of you know, David has been with me from the very start of this enterprise running for President. I can’t tell you how lucky I have been to have him manage our campaign back in 2008, then join the White House during these very challenging last two years. He’s built a well-deserved reputation as being a numbers genius and a pretty tough combatant when it comes to politics. But what people don’t always realize -- because he doesn’t like to show it -- is the reason he does this stuff is because he cares deeply about people. And he cares about justice, and he cares about making sure that everybody gets a shot in life. And those values have motivated him to do incredible things, and were it not for him, we would not have been as effective a White House and I probably wouldn’t be here.
So I thought it was worthwhile for us just to say -- even if he doesn’t want us to say it -- thank you to David Plouffe. (Applause.)
Thank you, everybody.
