"President Obama travels to New Orleans this week for a town hall meeting -- and for a look at the recovery in the city battered by Hurricane Katrina four years ago.
It will be Obama's first visit since the presidential campaign, when, as a candidate, he had a long list of promises for the city.
In early 2008, Obama told an enthusiastic crowd at Tulane University in New Orleans that his administration would restore their trust in government."
