POTUS schedule for Wednesday, January 4, 2012

The day after the Iowa caucuses, President Obama will spend his Wednesday at a high school in Shaker Heights, Ohio (a  suburb of Cleveland) to give what the White House calls an "economic-focused" speech. The White House confirmed this morning that he plans on making a recess appointment of Richard Cordray to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The travel pool spotted Cordray on Air Force One with the president so we can assume they'll be side-by-side for today's event. Before the speech at 1:15p, President Obama will be stopping at one family's residence to have a discussion about the economy.  The president will return to the White House later this afternoon.
