The Rundown, 10/20

After raising $3 million in San Francisco last week, President Obama gets back into money mode as he hits the trail again today, attending fundraisers for Democratic 23rd-district congressional Candidate Bill Owens, and another for the Democratic National Committee, in New York.

Demonstrating a knack for unity of form and function, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will deliver remarks on cybersecurity via webcast, as cybersecurity awareness month continues.

Congressional committees turn a sympathetic eye to the little guy today, as the House Financial Services Committee marks up consumer financial protection legislation, while the Senate Judiciary Committee considers whether bankruptcy reform could help Americans dealing with medical debt.

The State Department, meanwhile, will team up with the Chamber of Commerce and the Iraqi Embassy to hold their U.S.-Iraq Business and Investment Conference.

Plus: you've waited all year for it, and now it's finally arrived: it's...National Chemistry Week! The American Chemical Society will hold a kick-off event at Ballou High School in DC. Feel free to commemorate it on your own by watching this educational video on zinc oxide:
