Obama juggles policy, politics on busy Monday

President Barack Obama is pitching more support for education and infrastructure improvements while also campaigning fiercely for Democratic congressional candidates.

Obama starts his week at the White House, discussing highway and bridge improvements with his Cabinet and former secretaries of transportation.

Before flying from the capital for a pair of political appearances in Miami, the president will meet with students from the movie "Waiting for Superman," a sober examination of the problems in America's system of public education.
