President Obama starts his day with his routine briefings, beginning at 10:00 a.m. He leaves Washington for Cleveland Ohio shortly after 11:00 a.m.

At 1:15 p.m., Obama tours the Cleveland Clinic. At 2:10 p.m., he's expected to hold a town hall meeting on health-care reform.

Shortly after 4:00 p.m., the president flies to Chicago. He's slated to arrive at 4:30 p.m. CDT and attends a fundraising dinner at the home of Penny Pritzker at 6:15 p.m. Around 7:00 p.m., he delivers remarks at a major fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. At 8:15 p.m., he leaves Chicago to return to Washington.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs will not hold a press briefing in Washington today. Instead, he'll gaggle on the plane with Obama.

I don't expect much news out of the Cleveland event today. Obama’s trip there allows him to continue a public campaign to sell the country on health-care reform, with the backdrop of a model hospital like Cleveland Clinic that won’t hinder his speech today — but is also being careful to be neutral and wait as rickety reform efforts continue to gather into a substantive shape.
