    Default President-elect Barack Obama laying low Wednesday

    (CNN) — After a nearly two-year campaign for the White House, Barack Obama is likely to spend his first day as president-elect out of view from the public.

    He will not hold a press conference, campaign aides told CNN, though he is expected to hold one by the end of the week. Obama had joked with reporters earlier this week he would talk to them on Wednesday, though aides quickly said that was not likely.
    Instead, Obama will meet with key advisors and begin making decisions about his transition team, including who will serve as his White House chief of staff. Reports say Obama is close to naming Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel to that post, but that has not been confirmed.
    UPDATE: According to the pool report, Obama appears to be staying away from cameras. A scheduled photo-op with his family did not happen, and the president-elect did not take his daughters to school, as Obama aides had suggested he would.
    He was spotted making a trip to the gym, and he briefly waved to reporters as his car went by.
    Obama likely to stay out of view Wednesday
    Can't say I blame him for laying low today. It's been a long campaign. Plus, on top of everything else, he has to plan his grandmother's funeral.

    He is probably physically exhausted - and not just from the whole campaign. You know he had a wild night with his wife.

    He needs a nap and a vacation. He's got a lot of work ahead of him...

    After 2 years of straight campaigning, he deserves time off.

    He's offered the Chief of Staff to Rahm Emanuel from Illinois. Last night CBS was stating that he was going to offer it to Tom Daschle.

    I hope he gets the rest he needs and deserves. I want him well-rested before he starts his new job.

    I heard 2 things about this guy today.
    1. Hilliary was going to offer him the V.P. spot if she had won the primary.
    2. He is a mean bastard who is not very cuddly.
