Obama coming back next week to be on Jay Leno

Thumbnail image for av-obama-lax.jpgPresident Obama is returning to California for a two-day swing that will include a stop in Burbank on Tuesday — that is August 6 — to be on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno. It will be Obama's sixth time on Leno, his fourth as president, the Washington Post says. Obama will begin the day in Tennessee and Arizona talking about the middle class before traveling to Burbank. Carla Marinucci at the San Francisco Chronicle says that Obama will visit Camp Pendleton the next day "to talk to troops and their families...no word yet if Obama will also squeeze in one of his favorite activities in California — political fundraising."
