WASHINGON — President Barack Obama meets today with a key Middle East ally. He'll have a one-on-one meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah of Jordan in the Personal Dining Room, followed by an expanded meeting in the Oval Office.

Later, the president will present the Commander in Chief's trophy to the Naval Academy football team in the Rose Garden.

Then he and Vice President Joe Biden will meet with Senator Edward Kennedy and former President Bill Clinton to discuss their shared commitment to national service.

The President will then travel to The SEED School of Washington, which serves students facing challenges in school and at home. Following remarks on community service, Obama will sign the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, which will open up new service opportunities for millions of Americans.
