Boy, is Barack Obama one smooth politician or what? The NY Post is reporting that the President is having a bipartisan group of House and Senate members over to the White House for a few drinks so that they can talk about the pending stimulus bill. Just like he did in Illinois -- against tougher odds than he faces now -- expect Obama to change at least a few minds.

NY Post:

President Barack Obama has invited Republican and Democratic lawmakers for drinks at the White House as they consider his economic recovery bill that still faces opposition.

White House aides say about two dozen key members of Congress were invited to the Executive Mansion Wednesday evening. The guest list includes six House Democrats, six House Republicans and five senators from each party.

The New York Times has more.
