President Obama is headed to Southern California this morning, but he won't be in L.A. long before he heads out to the desert for a summit with Chinese president Xi Jinping. They'll be meeting at the opulent Sunnylands estate out in Rancho Mirage.  

This is the first time that President Obama will meet with China's new leader since he assumed the presidency in March. Here with more is Clayton Dube, director of the U.S.-China Institute at USC and he's actually headed out to Rancho Mirage later today.
