President Barack Obama stuck to the promise he made during his Nov.6 victory speech to invite his Republican opponent, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, to the White House.
The two met one-on-one, Thursday, Nov. 29 in the West Wing, where they feasted on grilled chicken salad and turkey chili in a private dining room overlooking the White House South Lawn.
They discussed issues that included the country's leadership in the world and how it might be maintained in the future.
During the lunch, which lasted just over an hour, Romney congratulated Obama on winning his second term in office. Romney also indicated that an opportunity might arise where the two could someday work together.
