Obama, Bill Clinton to meet at the White House Tuesday

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Former President Clinton will meet with President Obama at the White House tomorrow afternoon for the first time since Clinton's trip to North Korea that secured the release of two jailed journalists Eung Lee and Laura Ling in early August.

President Obama made a congratulatory phone call to the former president when he returned to the U.S. on August 6, but Clinton will provide a fuller debriefing at this face-to-face meeting.

According to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, President Clinton has debriefed with members of the president’s National Security team on at least two occasions since his return. Gibbs said the two presidents had not met sooner because they were unable to coordinate their schedules.

    Free carry states? I don't give a crap. I'm tired of these gun toting idiots wanting to "express their 2nd amendment rights" by bringing frickin' guns to the President's appearances. I wonder what the right-wing nuts would have thought if the situation were reversed when Bush was spoutin' his b.s.
