President Bush and President-elect Barack Obama will meet again before Inauguration Day -- and with the other living presidents in tow, according to the White House and Democratic aides. The purpose of the meeting will be to "give advice and share stories" before Obama is sworn in on Jan. 20, a Democratic aide said.
Bush and Obama met on Nov. 10, just days after the election, and discussed holding a future meeting then. Now Bush plans to host a luncheon for Obama and the three former presidents -- Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter -- on January 7, White House press secretary Dana Perino said.
Obama has been conducting a steady stream of private meetings in Chicago in recent days, in addition to his public Cabinet selections and press conferences. On Tuesday, he convened his economic advisers to discuss the handling of a stimulus package; earlier in the week, he saw his national security team. Obama leaves for Hawaii later this week.
