Obama calls news on oil spill 'positive sign'

President Barack Obama says news that BP has

succeeded in capping the Gulf oil spill is a "positive sign."

But he says, "We're still in the testing phase." The president

said he would have more to say on the development Friday.

Obama spoke in response to a question outside the White House

after delivering a statement on Senate passage of a financial

overhaul bill.
