In a press conference today in London, CBS White House correspondent Chip Reid asked President Obama the final American-press question and the President told him: "My heart goes out to you." Reid's father passed away at the start of the G-20 news conference, but Reid's family encouraged him to remain in Europe--noting that his father would have wanted that.

Politico has the clip.

CBS reports that Reid said in a note to coworkers: "My father was my hero and I’m here to make him proud."
