Good morning from the White House. It's a day of two high level meetings for the president - in the morning with Vice President Biden and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid followed by a late afternoon get together with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The issue: The looming debt ceiling deadline, a subject that appears to have left both parties at an impasse - especially after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor walked out of negotiations last week. With the clock ticking fast toward the early August deadline, the issue now appears solely to rest on Obama's shoulders.
Also happening at the White House today: Obama holds a reception for MLS champions the Colorado Rapids. You may remember the rapids beat FC Dallas in a dramatic overtime final last November.
