Obama meets with Miss America

Washington (CNN) – While waiting on Congress to reach a deal, President Barack Obama appears to be multitasking.

The President met Wednesday with Miss America Nina Davuluri, winner of the 2013 crown.


A White House official said Davuluri participated in a group photo with the President in honor of the Children's Miracle Network Hospital Champions.

“Following the photo, she briefly visited the Oval Office,” the official added.

And on another note, CNN photojournalists spotted long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad entering the West Wing Wednesday morning.

    Tough to be a republican these days. Always on the wrong side of history. I will not miss the GOP when they no longer exist.

    If Obama hadn't previously met with other Miss America contestant winners, Fox News will be all over this story, saying that he's meeting with this one because she's not white. Could be 1,000 reasons for meeting one and not the others, but it goes without saying that many people are stupid enough to be easily baited.
