White House (AP) Washington motorists are in for varying degrees of gridlock today. The pope is in town and so is British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

Brown meets with President Bush this afternoon. And he'll also be meeting, in effect, with Bush's successor. Brown has back-to-back meetings at the British embassy this morning with each of the three remaining major candidates: democratic rivals Hillary
Clinton and barrack Obama, and John McCain, who's locked up the republican nomination.

Brown is officially neutral in the U.S. election but has praised all three candidates.

The prime minister and Bush have much to talk about, chiefly Iraq. Brown has put plans for pulling out more British troops on hold because of instability in the in the south, where his country's troops are stationed.
