We, the national press corps won't see the president today but many of the television watching public will. As this administration has done before, they have invited local TV stations from around the country to spend a day at the White House. The day includes a tour of the White House, a tour of the kitchen garden and interviews with hometown administration officials. But the real draw is a sitdown interview with President Obama.
The local markets that snagged an in iterview are Roanoke, Virginia, Jacksonville, Florida, Greenville, South Carolina, Sioux City, Iowa, Green Bay, Wisconsin, Colorado Springs, Colorado, Reno, Nevada, and Fresno, California.
