Even if we’ve got a majority of Democrats, I think it’s very important to listen to Republicans, to respect them…I want to have a weekly meeting with Republican and Democratic leaders to talk about the economy, to talk about foreign policy, so that we’re actually trying to solve problems, away from the TV cameras, not trying to score political points.” - President Barack Hussein Obama, March, 2008
