Obama will meet with Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the top congressional republicans, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the two top democrats.
On the agenda? Putting an end to the 36-hour plus government shutdown. But Obama is likely to implore GOP leaders to pass a "clean" continuing resolution while Boehner and McConnell hold fast to their defund or delay Obamacare stance, so don't expect much to come of today's 5:30 meeting.
Wait, what's that?
