Well, this morning we brought you the GOP’s best foot forward. Tonight, we’ve got the Administration’s view of the post-mid-term Obama – GOP power breakfast (with a little annotation from The Bag). If the McConnell expression is predictive of anything, perhaps hope is alive. (Here’s the background on the painting, by the way. If the Administration does switch out this pastoral painting with “The Peacemakers,” why give the three amigos the satisfaction?) Notice also, by the way, how Pelosi, having lost the Majority Leader spot, is outside the door.
With apologies to Pete Souza.
