Obama readies for 'Golf Summit'

Washington (CNN) - President Obama has played more than 60 rounds of golf during the first half of his term, but the match he’s set to play Saturday just might carry the highest stakes.

Listen: How a game of golf can help two sides together:

That’s when the president will tee up with House Speaker John Boehner, another avid golfer, amidst what appears to be a stalemate between the White House and Republicans on the Hill over the issue of raising the debt ceiling. Vice President Joe Biden and Ohio Gov. John Kasich will round out the foursome.

    I'm not sure why this is of any interest to us but I'm sure there will be a lot of sniping about our elected officials daring to take the time for a little leisurely activity, even if it is work-related.
