Obama Meeting With Romney at White House Nov. 29
Update: In case anyone is wondering, Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked if Romney was in line for a cabinet level position. There was laughter and then a response: no. There is no agenda for the meeting tomorrow. Another reporter asked about Obama's emotions and feelings toward Mitt. Carney said Obama feels pretty good about how the election turned out.
