Obama thinks "it's a great day for America," White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters aboard Air Force One, as the president headed to Virginia to campaign.
"The president is very pleased that the two sides have come together to resolve their differences and ensure that, going forward, when we watch our favorite teams play in the NFL, we can focus on the players and the game rather than on the officiating," Carney said.
Obama himself had weighed in on the standoff after the final play of the Seahawks-Packers game.
