McCain to Meet with President Obama for Private Meeting

President Obama “will host Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for a private meeting at the White House on Wednesday,” The Hill reports.

It will be the first meeting between the president and his 2008 Republican adversary since Obama took office.

The White House said Tuesday night the Oval Office meeting would take place Wednesday afternoon, though there was no indication as to the reason for the meeting, or scheduled topics for discussion.

Obama and McCain sat down for talks at transition headquarters in Chicago after the Democrat’s election. The two have crossed paths since then, but not one-on-one; McCain participated in an April 2009 meeting at the White House with leaders of the House and Senate Armed Services committees, and McCain was a participant in the bipartisan healthcare summit a year ago.
