Good morning from WWR -
The President today has one event, a morning appearance at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, where he'll deliver remarks at The America’s Promise Alliance Education event. The organization, formed by General Colin Powell and his wife Alma Powell, is the nation’s largest partnership organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth. Obama will unveil new steps in the Administration’s effort to improve the nation's schools.
Obama also has his usual intelligence, economic and staff briefings; in the afternoon he'll meet with Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.
A quick look at the rest of the week. Tomorrow Obama heads to Savannah GA for a town hall meeting; Wednesday through Friday he'll have meetings at the White House. The big economic event this week is Friday's report on February payrolls. The consensus estimate is for a loss of 50,000 more jobs and an uptick in the U3 unemployment rate, currently 9.7%.
