Obama To Hold News Conference This Morning

There's word from the White House that President Obama will be holding a news conference there this morning. It's set to start at 10:30 a.m. ET (though these events often do not begin on time; and this one's already been pushed back from its "original" start time of 10:15 a.m.).

We will live blog during it.

Earlier, the White House said there would be a "significant employment announcement for veterans and military spouses." So that may be the subject the president addresses in his opening remarks.
