President's Tuesday Schedule

We won't be seeing much of the President today. He'll make one public appearance tonight at a reception with Greek Prime Minister Papandreou to mark Greek Independence Day. But their meeting in the Oval Office - where topics like Afghanistan and Greece's market-shaking debt crisis will be discussed - is closed press.

The President also meets with a bipartisan group of Senators to discuss energy/climate legislation. Along with healthcare and education, this is one of Obama's top three priorities. The House has passed an energy/climate bill, but a similar bill is bogged down in the Senate. Obama has hinted that the thorniest part of the Senate bill - cap-and-trade - could be taken out of the bill. Expected to attend are:

Secretary of Energy Steven Chu
Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar
Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack
EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson
Senator Max Baucus (D-MT)
Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-NM)
Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA)
Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH)
Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA)
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME)
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH)
Senator John Kerry (D-MA)
Senator George LeMieux (R-FL)
Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT)
Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN)
Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV)

Also on the President's agenda today: another lunch with a group of CEOs. The White House will get their credit card numbers and charge them for their meal. The President will also talk with his Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships in the Roosevelt Room, and thank them for their work.
