Obama, McConnell to Meet at White House Wednesday, No Bourbon Expected

Official White House Photo by Pete Souza(WASHINGTON) -- When President Obama welcomes Mitch McConnell into the Oval Office for a private meeting Wednesday afternoon, there are no plans for bourbon to be served.

Instead, it's a chance for the two to meet alone for the first time since McConnell was selected to become the next Senate Majority Leader.

Despite McConnell having once said his biggest goal was to make Obama a one-term president and Obama having often denounced McConnell, the two have plans to talk about taxes and trade, aides say, as well as other potential areas of agreement.

McConnell said he wants to have a responsible governing majority and Obama wants to bolster his legacy, so this meeting will be an early test to see what the two can accomplish together -- without bourbon.
