Was McCain invited to dine with the President in 2008?

I don't remember.

I suppose it was not yet his home until after the inauguration..

1. They don't have a trough in the White House.

2. Yes:

Obama and his 2008 Republican challenger, Arizona Sen. John McCain, met at the White House shortly after McCain's defeat. The meeting was private, though reporters and photographers were let in the room for a couple minutes to snap a few photos.

3. They met in Chicago on November 17, 2008



President-elect Barack Obama and Senator John McCain agreed on Monday, in their first meeting since the election, to work together on some of the nation’s most pressing challenges, from the financial crisis to national security problems.

After a private meeting in the Obama transition offices on the 38th floor of the Kluczynski Federal Building in downtown Chicago, the two men issued a joint statement saying that they agreed “that Americans of all parties want and need their leaders to come together and change the bad habits of Washington so that we can solve the common and urgent challenges of our time.”

Obama is a class act. I don't believe Reagan or Bush II ever did this.

4. Thanks. Too bad McCain decided to be as rabid as the rest of them

Gone were the days when he stood up to say that Obama was an American only with different policy.

5. Interesting photo

I wonder how a body language expert would read it. All three of them are sitting the same way and none of them looks at ease.

7. Wouldn't it have been Dimson meeting with O?

Since Dimson was the sitting/outgoing POTUS?

8. Yes he did. I was watching Rachel Maddow last night and she noted that McCain was invited

by President Obama but interestingly enough President Bush did not invite or even talk with John Kerry after the election. I am a divider not a uniter.
