Walk through a metal detector — which he set off.

After walking back across Pennsylvania Avenue from a holiday reception at the Blair House, Obama took a detour to the security checkpoint at the Northwest Gate and chatted with the security guards for a little bit.

“I just wanted to see what it was like getting in here,” Obama said.
