Capitol Hill (CNN) – Leaving the Capitol after a week of meetings that reached out to every member of Congress, President Obama said, “We had a good conversation.”
OK. Leaders talking? Check. Next question. Will it matter?
[2:26] Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Arizona, paused when asked. Then he responded, “Just like any relationship, you can’t get anywhere if you don’t talk. My wife tells me that all the time.”
But will it change positions? House Republicans who met with the president Wednesday left the meeting, perhaps like the president, waiting to see what happens next.
[2:49] Rep. Raul Labrador, R-ID said, “It’s not about what he did today or what he did yesterday, what he did last week with having lunch with people, it’s about what policies are going to come out of this conversation.”
