After a day's delay, President Obama met Tuesday with a leading candidate to head NASA, the White House said.
White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said Obama met with Charles Bolden, a former shuttle commander and retired Marine major general.
The meeting had been scheduled Monday but was postponed because the president's talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went long. MSNBC
