Quiet Day Expected for Obama
By Anne E. Kornblut
President-elect Barack Obama has kept a relatively low profile since winning office, but has been filling his days with meetings in his transition office, often for hours on end.
That is likely to be the case again on Tuesday, aides said, as Obama moves ahead on big issues, such as considering whether to choose Sen. Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State, and less global ones, such as whether to send his daughters to Maret, Sidwell or GDS. (All three elite independent schools are under consideration, people close to him have said, and the girls reportedly visited Georgetown Day School yesterday.)
There no official events, such as yesterday's sit-down with Sen. John McCain, who Obama defeated at the polls on Election Day.
The next president of the United States is planning to hold some discussions by phone, and may fill some senior White House positions on Tuesday or Wednesday -- nothing suprising, but instead a continued rollout of his trusted advisers, who will join heavy hitters from Capitol Hill to assume White House roles. An announcement on something big -- such as a role for Clinton, or a for New York Fed Chairman Tim Geithner -- is not expected before the weekend.
