After a busy, and unpredictable, weekend at the Summit of the Americas in Colombia, President Obama is laying low Monday with no events on his schedule. Sadly for reporters, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is also not, as of now, planning to hold a press briefing.
Still, it will be a busy day of news surrounding the White House. On the Hill, the Senate is expected to defeat by a partisan vote a measure that would take steps to initiate the so-called "Buffett Rule" the president has made an aggressive case for over the last couple of weeks. It's possible the president might react on camera to the defeat, though a paper statement is more likely.
Meanwhile, the secret service scandal continues to dominate the news cycle three days after it broke. With the story breaking late Friday night, it's likely most Americans are just now catching up on it, so look for another full day of coverage on the issue.
