Washington (CNN) – Presidents present and past team up at the White House Thursday, when President Barack Obama hosts former President Bill Clinton in the Oval Office. The official White House schedule lists the meeting as closed.
An administration source tells CNN that the meeting is a "check-in" between the two men.
The last sitdown meeting between the president and former president took place on September 14, when the two men met for lunch in New York City.
While at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the former president is also expected to visit with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who served as senior adviser to Clinton during the 1990's.
Obama going to ask Billy boy how to run the country? Obama needs all the help he can get, since he is clueless as to what he is doing.
the clinton czar
did anyone check in with hillary about this?
i cant believe how everyone in washington is so connected
insiders club.vote them out
Obama has been a disaster. I wish Hillary had won instead.
My guess is that in 7 years, Rahm Emanuel will be serving some jail time for corruption.
Probably asking Bubba for help.
It is good that the two most successful presidents in the last 30 years get together.
This is great presidents sharing there thoughts on the country maybe this will help.
Ya' all voted for him.....for BOTH of them....
a great leader seeks out advice and listens to others....
Good for them. It is going to take a while to overcome the disaster of the Bush 8 years.
I am sure they will talk about why the republicans are so scared of people who do not belong to an all white country club.
Obama is trying to find out how Clinton got re-elected after Hillary-care was crushed. I don't think Obama is going to be as lucky. One and done...
It is President Clinton's team on the field, check them, more being appointed every month. This third generation of Team Clinton is the result of democratic unity, yeah right. My President Obama is so busy reading briefing books that this will give him real world experience in action.
A person would not be too bright if he asked Bush/Cheney for advice for bringing the country to the edge of a major depression.
This should be a real meeting of the minds.
Best 2 Presidents...the Republicans should take notes and learn how to be real leaders instead of being puppets for lobbyists like Bush/Cheney.
What I love about this President is that he seeks out information and counsel BEFORE he speaks and makes decisions. With all he has been faced with since he took office, he is doing goo. I support my president!
Whatever happened to the United States of America? It seems the "United" has no more meaning for those who would have our President smeared, libeled, and misrepresented. After all, he represents all of us whether or not we voted for him. I cannot imagine anyone showing up at an event during the Bush presidency with such defaming and blistering criticism. Even those of us opposed to his policies! I personally believe it is the responsibility of the citizens of this country be respectful of the office of the leader of our nation. I am beginning to believe that many Republicans and disgruntled citizens are actually unpatriotic despots who do not care one whit about our nation and it's democracy. DEMOCRACY IS NOT A POLITICAL PARTY NOR IS IT ECONOMICS....EDUCATE THYSELF.
This is a slap to those who didn't vote for Hillary. I am a republican that was expecting for Hillary to win in the primary because she is a much better candidate than McCain.
Now we know that Democrats failed to choose Hillary - we could have been much better like in Clinton years when we have a good economic period.
Great company. I hope they enjoy it.
It is beyond me how anybody with a dash of sense can claim Obama's presidency a success. (unless you are a hopeless partisan). It has only been a year! News flash everyone: republicans have screwed up when they were in power, the same with the democrats! Exactly why do we expect anything different? There have been some sucesses under both, they have been failures under both! Politics as usual!
As long as he's not talking to GWB and GHWB I'm fine with that. Two smart people sharing knowledge. What could be better than that...
Why is everyone getting on Obama. I have always liked Hillary Clinton and thought that she might have been a great President and I still do but Obama has truly done a great job and has earned the respect of millions throughout the world. The Republicans are lucky that they lost because the mess that was given to Obama to fix is incredible.
Who listens to Giuliani and Newt except those who are already against anything that is not Republican. Republicans have shown one thing very well - THEY HAVE NO CREDIBILITY ANYWHERE EXCEPT IN CERTAIN AREAS OF THE USA for obvious reasons. That will never change.
The majority of intelligent and fair minded Americans can't possibly have such short memories. If they do, then that explains why they voted for George W the second time.
Its good to see the two most unsuccessful Presidents in the last 30 years on terrorism get together. Maybe Bill can give him some new apology lines. The GOP made Clinton be a better president, hopefully the same thing will happen with the transparent LIAR IN CHIEF.
He ought to be talking with Bush instead of Clinton.
The best two guys that have been president.
"Obama has been a disaster. I wish Hillary had won instead"
You mean the "Hillary" who now works for President Obama and supports him fully???? Idiot.
