Just like last time, President Barack Obama is in Los Angeles to lend a fundraising hand to Democrats, specifically the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The President will spend the morning in Wisconsin before heading to California. According to one website, he will be arriving at LAX around 4:15 p.m., which could mean rush hour traffic in parts of the city could get even more gridlocked.

Obama will join House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the home of John and Marilyn Wells, according to Ted Johnson at Wilshire and Washington.

"There also has been increasing grumbling and frustration from industry liberals, disappointed in aspects of the president's agenda and in particular the failure of the Senate to pass a comprehensive climate bill," notes Johnson. "And it also hasn't been an easy terrain to raise money with the continued economic anxiety, although it remains to be seen just how much impact it will have on industry fund raising."

Obama is scheduled to travel to Seattle on Tuesday.
