This morning, President Obama convened a meeting of his Cabinet -- the third of 2013. 

"Even as we have been spending a lot of time on the Syria issue and making sure that international attention is focused on the horrible tragedy that occurred there," he said, "it is still important to recognize that we’ve got a lot more stuff to do here in this government." 

In talking through the agenda, the President described focusing on the steps necessary to improve education, put people back to work, and tackle some of the budget debates looming in the near future.
