Obama's Day: Citizens ask questions via the Web
WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama is hosting a town-hall meeting on the economy at the White House.
In a twist, people all over the country can submit questions via the Internet. It's a resource that let him reach out to huge numbers of people during the campaign and which he's been mobilizing as president.
There will also be an in-person audience of about 100 people, including teachers, nurses, small-business owners and community leaders.
The session will be held in the East Room, the same room where Obama held his prime-time news conference Tuesday night.
