Did Lindsey Graham just blink? [View all]

GOP's Graham on Obama dinner: 'The election is over'
By Kasie Hunt and Mike Viqueira, NBC News

Lindsey Graham took the lead on the guest list. Barack Obama extended the invitations. And on Wednesday night, after weeks of gridlock, a dozen Republican senators are dining out with the president.

"We need to stop the campaign. The election is over," Graham said Wednesday. "If we never talk to each other, I know exactly what's going to happen, this country is going to fail."

So far, the Republicans who've been invited are giving Obama the benefit of the doubt -- even if they don't want to elaborate.

"How do you say no to the president of the United States who would like to have dinner with some of your colleagues? You don't," Graham said.

So does this mean they are no longer going to say no to Obama or are they just looking for a free meal?
