President Obama's schedule is light today, as he was wheels up at 8 a.m. for the G20 London Summit and will spend the majority of the day in transit. The Summit, which begins April 2, includes leaders from 20 industrialized and developing nations who will meet to discuss reforming the global financial system. Upon arriving in England this evening, Obama heads to the American School in London to meet with U.S. embassy workers.

The Post's Dan Balz weighs the significance of the president's trip here.
