Barack Obama met recently with conservative talking heads, who were critical of his candidacy, including George Will, Bill Kristol, David Brooks, and Charles Krauthammer. No doubt that this will reflect well on the President-elect. All these gentlemen are generally fair (likely why they were picked for the evening) and would not have come at the newly sworn President with guns blazing anyway, but we can now expect them to turn away from (silly) artificial timelines and the like and advocate more "loyal" and less "opposition" from the loyal opposition.
Now, if Rush Limbaugh's secret trip to Washington had been for this meeting, that would have been more interesting. As it is, it smacks a bit of standard inside-the-beltway fare.
