POTUS's Schedule for Friday, December 17, 2010

WASHINGTON (CNN)– TGIF from the CNN White House Unit!! President Obama has a rather light day on his public schedule. Just a bunch of meetings but the highlight is an afternoon meeting with many labor leaders in the Roosevelt Room. That's closed to the press but maybe some of the leaders might brave the cold to come out to speak at the stakeout.

Of course, we're keeping our eye out to any important details about when POTUS might sign the tax bill. That could happen later this afternoon. We'll keep you posted when that happens. Full guidance from the White House:

11:00AM       Press Secretary Gibbs will convene an off-camera gaggle in the Brady Press Briefing Room
