CHICAGO -- Barack Obama will make his debut as president-elect at a news conference tomorrow.
The event is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Eastern time, and will follow a meeting between Obama and Vice President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. and their economic advisers, including billionaire investor Warren Buffett, Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, former Time Warner CEO Richard Parsons, former Clinton treasury secretaries Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers, and former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker.
On Monday, Obama will travel to Washington for his first White House session with President Bush. His wife, Michelle, will come along to meet with first lady Laura Bush.
"Michelle and I look forward to meeting with President Bush and the First Lady on Monday to begin the process of a smooth, effective transition," Obama said in a statement. "I thank him for reaching out in the spirit of bipartisanship that will be required to meet the many challenges we face as a nation."
