Later, the president meets with King Abdullah of Jordan in the Oval Office. There both leaders are expected to make public comments.
Then, President Obama and the first lady welcome the 2011 World Series winning St. Louis Cardinals to the East Room of the White House. There, it's like the president will work in a plug for his favorite baseball team, the Chicago White Sox.
