The president will be arriving in the city late Monday morning and will deliver the commencement address before the 600 graduates of all-female Barnard College at 1 p.m. Consider this your traffic report. Before heading back to the Washington, Obama will to head to a $5,000-a-ticket fund-raiser at the Rubin Museum of Art in Chelsea. The event will be co-hosted by LGBT Leadership Council and singer Ricky Martin. The president will also appear at private $35,800-per-plate fund-raising dinner where guests will enjoy a meal by chef Vikas Khanna. Not exactly George Clooney, but Martin and Khanna will have to do.
