    His day was complete, fulfilled. He can look back on that day and say that it was a very good day. The fact that he had seen Kennedy made it a very good day for him (at the time, of course).
    Sometimes we say it sarcastically. If a number of bad things happen and one final disaster occurs, we might say sarcastically, "Oh, great! This just makes my day."
    In the example above, the meaning is not sarcastic. The agent, at the time, was quite happy with how his day was going.
