Let’s take a look at this schedule for a second. Obama is planning to spend about two hours being president.
The press pool doesn’t have to arrive at the White House until 10:00 am, which means there’s no chance of anything happening until then – at the earliest – which means Obama is probably in the White House Residence in his pajamas eating oatmeal.
He starts work at about 10:30 am or so, looks like. And by noon he’ll be having lunch and prepping for his interviews, mostly with anchors who broadcast to markets in swing states, with New Orleans thrown in for cover.
And then he’ll be fundraising.
