Obama taking a break at Camp David, Romney on vacation in N.H., plus more to watch for Monday in politics

It's quiet on the politics front.

President Barack Obama is at Camp David until Tuesday with no public events on his schedule Monday, and Mitt Romney is on vacation in Wolfeboro, N.H., for the week.

Obama has a bus tour planned in Ohio and Pennsylvania on Thursday and Friday, and Romney will participate in a parade Wednesday in New Hampshire.

The biggest political moment of this holiday week is likely to come Friday when the June unemployment figure is released.

Also with noting: Catholic Sisters concludes a nine-state bus tour highlighting the work the group does with people at the economic margins and protesting budget cuts proposed by Republican Rep. Paul Ryan; protesters affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement convene Continental Congress 2.0 in Philadelphia; and Republican Sen. Marco Rubio continues a book tour in his home state of Florida to promote his autobiography, "An American Son: A Memoir."

And then there is this: It's the 80th anniversary of Franklin D. Roosevelt accepting the Democratic nomination for president on the final day of the party's convention in Chicago. Roosevelt and his running mate John Garner went on to defeat the Republican ticket of Herbert Hoover and Charles Curtis in a landslide victory
