Power Lunch

Obama and Bubba’s Budding Friendship

The bad blood between Barack Obama and Bill Clinton has apparently settled: The two have certainly been seeing a lot of each other, The Washington Post reports. Monday, after Obama's financial speech, he grabbed lunch with former President Clinton at an Italian restaurant in Greenwich Village, where, according to a spokesman, the two "split the bill." That's not the only place they've been seen together. They hobnobbed at Walter Cronkite's funeral last week, and conferred when Clinton came to the White House to brief Obama on his journalist-saving North Korea visit. Next week they'll see each other again when Obama speaks at the Clinton Global Initiative's annual meeting.
