Tomorrow, Barack Obama will make his Southern California debut as President of the United States. After arrtiving at Long Beach Airport in the afternoon, he'll hold a 4 p.m. town hall meeting in Costa Mesa followed by a tour of the Edison International Vehicle Electrics Plant in Pomona on Thursday.
Thursday at 1pm he'll hold another town hall at the Miguel Contreras Learning Complex in Downtown LA, then tape a segment for the Tonight Show with Jay Leno that will air Thursday night. Leno announced last week that he would host a free benefit concert on April 7 in Detroit -- one of the cities hit hardest by the recession. A second show has since been added to meet strong demand.
Tickets for both the OC and LA Town Halls are "sold out", but you still have a chance to see him in Burbank on the Tonight Show.
