Prediction Poll: Will Jan Brewer Cause a Scene in Front of President Obama Today?



Today's a big day for Arizonans, as we collectively hope that Governor Jan Brewer can behave herself in front of the President of the United States.

As we all know from the infamous photo of Brewer's finger in the president's face from last year, Brewer couldn't quite contain herself during their previous meeting.

According to Brewer's spokesman, the governor is "most interested in hearing from the President whether he will approve Arizona's request for a Major Federal Emergency Declaration for the Yarnell Hill Fire. It's the most important issue that the President could address tomorrow and the Governor plans to raise it with him in person."

Air Force One is scheduled to arrive at 11:50 a.m., so we'll have the verdict here in a few hours. In the meantime, what do you think -- will Brewer cause a scene in front of Obama again?
