Obama to Host McCain Dinner
Barack Obama talks a lot about changing politics as usual and crossing the ideological divide. He'll make good on that promise the day before he is sworn-in -- at least for dinner. The Presidential Inaugural Committee announced today that Obama will hold a series of bipartisan dinners Jan. 19 for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), whom Obama defeated in the presidential election, Vice President-elect Joseph Biden and Colin Powell.
"In these times of great challenge and great change, leadership requires rising above the same old narrow partisanship," Obama said in a statement.
The dinners will take place at the National Building Museum, Union Station and the Washington Hilton. Tickets are required.
