Obama Keeps His Schedule Clear to Focus on Ebola

CHICAGO (AP) - President Barack Obama is playing it by ear this week as his administration's response to the Ebola scare continues to evolve.

After waking up in his own bed Monday at his family's home in Chicago, Obama plans to vote early for the midterms and attend a fundraiser for Democrats. How he'll spend the rest of the week is anyone's guess.

That's because Obama's schedule this week is a work in progress, in a departure from the normal practice in which the president's schedule is previewed days in advance. The blank slate reflects the White House's attempt to stay nimble, leaving Obama room to maneuver amid a public health crisis that has been anything but predictable.

Last week, Obama twice had to cancel planned campaign trips to deal with Ebola.
