The Week in Obama for August 9

It's a relatively simple week for Obama.

After a weekend spent goofing off with some basketball greats, Monday will find the president consorting with the Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints. After that, he'll fly to Austin, Texas, to give a quick speech about education at the University of Texas at Austin.


On Tuesday, like on Thursday and Friday, Obama will take general meetings with advisors at the White House. And on Wednesday, the president meets with the national security team about Iraq.
