ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports:
This morning, the president has a round of closed-door meetings after his regular morning briefings.
Mr. Obama will first meet with Peace Corps Director Aaron Williams in the Oval Office, who was nominated by the president for this position just this July.
Afterward, the president will meet with former astronaut and now-NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, “to discuss the Administrator’s work at NASA and they will also discuss the Augustine Committee’s analysis,” the White House says.
Led by Norman Augustine, the White House panel reviewed NASA plans for Project Constellation – a project for moon exploration by 2020. The president will discuss those findings during his meeting with Bolden this afternoon.
On the sixth night of Hanukkah, the president and first lady in the evening will host a Hanukkah reception on the State Floor.
