Obama and his GOP rival meet for lunch at the White House
Well, we don't know much about what they talked about, but we know what they ate: white turkey chili and Southwestern grilled chicken salad.
That's what was on the menu for Thursday's lunch between President Barack Obama and his recently vanquished GOP opponent Mitt Romney, according to a statement by the White House Press Office.
The president and Romney met for about an hour over lunch in the Private Dining Room next to the Oval Office. Reporters were kept out of the dining room, but the White House says that the former Massachusetts governor congratulated the president for the success of his campaign and wished him well. The two discussed the United States' leadership in the world and the importance of maintaining that leadership position. They also promised to stay in touch, especially if shared interests come up in the future.
Shortly after winning reelection, the president indicated that he would invite Romney to the White House to hear any ideas the businessman might have about helping the country.
