WASHINGTON (CNN) - The Blair House is usually used for hosting foreign dignitaries, top-level White House staff and Cabinet secretaries will gather there and at the White House Conference Center this weekend to assess the first six months of the Obama presidency, according to a White House official.
"All 22 Cabinet-rank members were invited and are attending," the official said, adding that "they will discuss goals and priorities for the administration's agenda moving forward."
The "working sessions" will take place on Friday and Saturday, and have been "long planned," according to the official. The official said President Obama and vice President Biden will drop in on Friday and the vice president will return on Saturday.
White House spokesperson Kate Bedingfield also confirmed the sessions and said it is "an opportunity to collaborate," like "every administration since President Eisenhower's."
