Good Morning from the White House. President Obama's one public appearance today will come in the Rose Garden at 1:05 p.m. when he is expected to announce former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray as the new head of the Consumer Protection Bureau. The year-old bureau had been de-facto led by Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Warren, but the White House determined she would not win a confirmation battle in the Senate due to overwhelming GOP opposition.
Also on the president's schedule is a meeting with some of this country's most wealthiest individuals to champion the cause of charitable giving. Among those in attendance will be investment tycoon Warren Buffett and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
Obama will then host what the White House is calling "an education roundtable" with business leaders as well as Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and top White House policy adviser Melody Barnes. Also in attendance will be former Secretary of State Colin Powell and his wife Alma.
Finally, the president will mark the one-year anniversary of the Dodd-Frank financial regulatory reform bill by getting a run down of the law's implementation from heads of financial regulatory agencies.
Full schedule after the jump:
