On Friday President Obama and Michelle Obama met with Gabrielle Giffords for about 10 minutes while they were in Cape Canaveral, Florida for the now-delayed space shuttle launch. A White House official says the President first greeted Mark Kelly, who said, "I bet you were hoping to see a rocket launch today." Obama responded, "We were hoping to see you." Giffords updated the Obamas on Giffords condition before they all went to see her in an off-camera meeting.
