Obama Arrives at LAX, Bound for "Tonight Show"

President Barack Obama arrived in the Los Angeles area Tuesday afternoon to make an appearance on the "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

The afternoon taping for the 11:35 p.m. broadcast will be the president's sixth on the late-night talk show and fourth since taking office.

The conversation is expected to be light with a sprinkling of business, as Obama looks to rev up support for his economic agenda. That includes job creation and strengthening the middle class.

The president arrived at Los Angeles International Airport aboard Air Force One at about 3:25 p.m. and was greeted by LA Mayor Eric Garcetti.

The president promptly boarded Marine One to make his way to Burbank for the taping.

The Los Angeles Police Department released a list of areas for drivers to avoid traffic congestion.
