President Obama will spend his day in a series of behind-closed-doors meetings.

In the morning, Mr. Obama will receive his regular rounds of briefings from staff and then will have lunch with Vice President Biden. Afterward, he will meet with Secretary of State Clinton in the Oval Office.

In the afternoon, the president will "briefly attend" a meeting on the administration’s cybersecurity efforts in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. The meeting will be led by Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Commerce Secretary Gary Locke and will be attended by cybersecurity stakeholders from across the country.

In the evening, the president will meet with House Democratic leadership in the Oval Office to discuss legislative priorities before the August recess.

Expected attendees include:

-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
-Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Majority Leader
-Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), Majority Whip
-Rep. John Larson (D-CT), Democratic Caucus Chairman
-Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA), Democratic Caucus Vice Chairman
-Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Assistant to the Speaker and Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee
-Rep. George Miller (D-CA), Chair of the Democratic Policy Committee
-Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), Chair of the Democratic Steering Committee

On Tuesday, Mr. Obama held a similar meeting with the Senate Democratic leadership.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said that during the president's closed door meeting with Senate Democrats, they discussed the next three agenda items for the next few weeks: financial reform, passing an extension of unemployment insurance for the long-term unemployed and lending for small businesses.
