The Obama Administration certainly likes Los Angeles a lot more than the Bush one. President Barack Obama has already done a Los Angeles visit, now it's his counterpart's turn. Vice President Joe Biden will be in town tomorrow to highlight the progress of the Recovery Act, according to the White House today. He'll be touring the Esperanza Community Housing Corporation in South LA with Mayor Villaraigosa, Rep. Xavier Becerra and Ron Simms of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Then he and others will discuss with the press how stimulus funds are supporting HUD's "programs to eliminate dangerous lead-based paint from low-income homes and protect young children from lead poisoning."
