President Barack Obama will arrive in Los Angeles on Monday evening for a quick trip in support of Senator Barbara Boxer at her fundraiser. There will be no public events and only media will be allowed to be present for his arrival and departure. He'll be gone by the Tuesday morning. If a local high school in Lawndale wins a White House contest, the President will be back to give the commencement speech.
