Between the continued Congressional drama over President Barack Obama's economic stimulus package and the drop in the Dow after yesterday's unveiling by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner of the Administration's bank bailout plan, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs will be in the hot seat when he takes to the daily briefing podium today at 2 p.m.

The Fix loves hot seats -- particularly when we aren't sitting on them -- and so we'll be live twittering the proceedings. You can follow our tweets one of two ways: either sign up for "TheHyperFix" feed on Twitter or scroll down to the bottom of this post for a running account of the festivities.

See you at 2!
