And on his hundredth day in office…President Obama will field questions from the media.

The White House announced this afternoon that the president will host his third prime-time press conference next Wednesday at 8:00 p.m., EST. The conference will be televised from the East Room of the White House, after the president returns from a town hall meeting in St. Louis.

Next Wednesday marks the end of the president's first 100 days in office. A hundred days has become a historical gauge of progress for every administration since Franklin Delano Roosevelt successfully pushed a torrent of New Deal era reforms through Congress following his 1932 election.
