Obama comes to town Wednesday night*

Thumbnail image for marine-one-obama-ranchopk.jpgPresident Obama will fly into LAX on Wednesday and attend the USC Shoah Foundation’s 20th anniversary dinner, as well as a Democratic campaign fundraiser that evening. The foundation was founded by Steven Spielberg to gather personal histories about the Holocaust from survivors and witnesses. The White House says Obama plans to stay overnight in the Los Angeles area, hit a Democratic National Committee fundraiser on Thursday, then head off in the morning for more fundraising stops in California, starting in San Diego. The arrival window on Wednesday at LAX is prime afternoon drive time. Departure on Thursday is late morning. More details later.

* Tuesday afternoon update: Looks like the action will be centered around Beverly Hills, Century City and Bel Air. Thinking of using Beverly Glen tomorrow evening? Think again. Based on information put out by the Beverly Hills PD, Obama is likely to chopper to the park in Cheviot Hills as on recent trips, then take Pico and Beverly Glen up into Bel Air. That's where the Democratic Party fundraiser is at the home of Disney chairman Alan Horn. Then it's to Century City for the USC Shoah Foundation dinner, overnight in the area, then to the Beverly Hilton on Thursday morning for a DNC fundraiser before heading back to LAX.
