(CNN) - President-elect Barack Obama plans to meet with key Capitol Hill leaders on Monday to discuss his economic stimulus plan, according to congressional sources who say precise scheduling is underway.

One Democratic leadership aide tells CNN specifically that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will sit down with the president-elect one day before calling the new Congress into session.

A meeting involving the Republican leaders is also under discussion, sources say, but details are being worked out.

    To Mesa,
    Look, PE Auntie shouldn't and wouldn't be deported. Being a so close relative of the President of any country in the world is good enough to be rewarded the permanent resident status of that country.
    This woman is the "father" of the president of the United States of America. She deserve to have a permanent resident status as well as PE half-brothers.
    Even Senator McCain expressed his respect for this matter. I don't know if you have a close aunt or uncle.

    The GOP is shaking in their Italian loafers ... remembering how poorly they treated the Democratic minority for 6 years... the only time "bipartisan" crosses Republican thin lips is when they are out of power.

    Fortunately for America, Obama believes he was elected to be President of the whole county, not just "the base."

    Republicans now have the opportunity to show what they are really made of – if they will ever be fit to lead again. With the nasty CD and the GOP leadership plans to obstruct a stimulus package ($700 billion for Wall Street and nothing for Main Street) – the GOP is not off to a good start.

    They had a golden opportunity 2000-2006 and blew it. The GOP didn't do much better 2006-2008 – now let's see if Republicans can ever put the good of the country ahead of what they think is the good of the party... wanna bet?

    Listen to yourself, mon ami.
    Either way, how exactly does that or would that affect your life?
    You're reaching for straws in an attempt to justify and satisfy your Poor White Trash "Country First' Bigotry.
    You're a silly goose.

    Guess the shrub is there to serve as the head cheerleader, since his cheerleader skills were the most education he availed himself of during his time at the esteemed institution of knowledge.

  10. Republican power?

    Get used to the fact that Obama is going to be the next President. You do not have to like that fact or respect the man. Seventy plus percent of Americans do not approve or respect the current Cock in Chief.

    But, you cannot avoid the fact that you will know how it feels to be on the losing side for at least the next 8 years!

    People like you have to find one place to live, where you can talk how much you hate Obama, listen Rush Limbaugh and so on. Don't accept any stimulus packages, any tax cut, whatever will come up during this black-smart-handsome President, guys, don't take it...
    Yes, true, he is very very confident, why not: being born black, graduated Harvard, was governor, then President-elect...
    And you job is what?
