Just days after the Obama administration reportedly asked Gov. David Paterson (D-N.Y.) to forego his 2010 campaign, the two politicians will meet up at an event in upstate New York.

President Obama will deliver an economic speech at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy. Paterson will attend the speech, as is customary for a governor of the president's party.

The White House hasn't scheduled any time for Paterson and Obama to sit down formally while the President is in New York, but it's almost certain they'll cross paths at the Troy event.

Whatever interaction the two have may be a bit awkward, however. The New York Times reported this weekend that President Obama asked Paterson not to run for a full term, fearing that his unpopularity might cost Democrats the governor's mansion.

Paterson assumed office when former Gov. Eliot Spitzer resigned in the wake of a sex scandal. The White House denies they made the request.

Paterson says he still plans to run in 2010.
