Obama to hold news conference Tues.

From NBC's Mark Murray
Based on President Obama's schedule, it was looking like a relatively slow week -- at least by previous standards. Today, in a few minutes, he holds an event marking a deal on prescription drug prices, and then signs into law the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. On Tuesday, he meets with Chilean President Bachelet. On Wednesday, he holds a town hall on health care. On Thursday, he meets with members of Congress to discuss immigration. And on Friday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel comes to the White House.

Video: The video is titled, "He's Barack Obama," and it shows the president dressed up as super hero as he tackles various issues.

But moments ago, the White House added another event to his schedule: a Rose Garden press conference, which will take place tomorrow at 12:30 pm ET.

Among the subjects about which he'll likely get questions: Iran, health care, and the stimulus.
