The Presidential Planner

Feb 4, 2010 7:01am

ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports: The president and the first lady will attend the National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C. this morning.  The president also spoke at the annual breakfast last year. After returning to the White House, the president will meet with House Speaker Pelosi, Sen. Reid, Sen. Durbin, and Rep. Hoyer in the Oval Office to “discuss a broad range of priorities at the top of the administration’s legislative agenda,” the White House says. The president will have lunch with business leaders in the Old Family Dining Room. In late January, during the president’s last lunch with a small group of business leaders, the White House indicated that this is something the president would be doing on a regular basis. “The Obama administration has reached out throughout the first year to develop an ongoing dialogue with the business community as we work rebuild and strengthen our economy for the long-term,” a White House official said then. This is the presidents fifth lunch with business leaders.
In the afternoon, the president and Vice President Biden will meet separately with Treasury Secretary Geithner and Secretary of State Clinton in the Oval Office, weekly meetings held with each. In the evening, the president will put on his fundraising hat and deliver remarks at a DNC fundraising reception at the Capitol Hilton. While there, he will also take part in a question and answer session facilitated by Organizing for America Director Mitch Stewart. The president will then deliver remarks at a second DNC fundraising dinner at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. — Sunlen Miller
