President-elect Barack Obama, who has been laying low the last few days, plans to be out in public in high-profile appearances on Sunday.
In the morning, he's the guest on NBC's venerable "Meet the Press," where he is certain to be questioned on the economy, his cabinet picks, and more.
In the afternoon, he plans a press conference in Chicago. His office said this afternoon that "on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, President-Elect Barack Obama will be speaking about the contributions of those that have served our nation."
After back-to-back-to-back press conferences last week to name his economic team and to show Americans he is fully aware of the deepening recession, this week he only held a news conference to announce his national security team and a briefer one to name Bill Richardson as commerce secretary.
