With the election over, President Barack Obama lavished praise on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at today's press briefing:

"There are certain aspects of Governor Romney's record and his ideas that I think could be very helpful," said Obama. "Well, and to give you one example, I do think he did a terrific job running the Olympics."

Obama added, "He presented some ideas in the course of the campaign that I actually agree with."

During the campaign, praise from Obama for Romney was hard to come by.
