This is a day of new beginnings.
On the morning that President Barack Obama stands to deliver the inaugural address for his second term, he has some guests in at the White House this morning:
Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia among them — the Republican majority leader of the House that gave Obama fits in the second half of his first term.
“Headed to the @WhiteHouse with my wife Diana for coffee with the President, Vice President and their lovely wives,” Cantor wrote on his Twitter account this morning.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, also joined the coffee klatch.
