Does Obama Actually Use the Oval Office?

Slate: "Not most of the time. The president conducts briefings and holds staff meetings in the Oval Office, but it's used primarily as a ceremonial space. Obama does much of his day-to-day work -- such as editing speeches and reviewing papers -- in the President's Study, located off the Oval Office, and in the Treaty Room, on the second floor of the White House. Many recent former presidents -- including both Bushes, Carter, Ford, and Johnson -- chiefly worked out of the study as well. The last president to use the Oval Office regularly for desk work may have been John F. Kennedy, who would go there after hours to record the day's events for what would, presumably, have become his memoirs."
