POTUS' Day Ahead: A visitor from China

All eyes will be on President Obama as he and Vice President Biden greet Chinese VP Xi Jinping today in the Oval Office.  Jinping  will become president next year and it's the first time the two men have sat down in such a high profile setting.  It also comes only a few months after president Obama's swing through Asia last November, when he vowed the United States would not tolerate unfair trade practices from China.

The two men's prepared statements are expected to be cordial, but in meetings like this it's often what's not said that makes news.
