The news after President Barack Obama's re-election was focused on the looming fiscal cliff, but the unfolding scandal surrounding Gen. David Petraeus has overshadowed most everything else since the story broke last Friday.

On Wednesday, Obama will hold his first full press conference in eight months. This is also the first time he'll address the White House press corps since August. What will he talk about and what will he be asked by the press corps?

Jason Johnson, professor of political science and communications at Hiram College, will join The Daily Circuit to discuss the press conference. Richard Stoll, professor of political science at Rice University, The Nation's John Nichols, and Politico White House reporter Josh Gerstein will also join the discussion.
