Painful spending cuts may have led the White House to halt public tours, but President Barack Obama and Republican senators could need to loosen their belts, not tighten them, after their peacemaking dinner at a superswank Washington, D.C., restaurant on Wednesday. How swank? The eatery featuresa menu with a $1,776—per person—price tag, excluding tax and tip.

"This is hardly a profile in courage by President Obama. For years now, President Obama has tried his hardest to have it both ways on this issue."
Chris Christie says he may end up as Mitt Romney’s running mate: 

Chris Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey, has been careful to say that he is not “campaigning” to become Mitt Romney’s running mate, the 2012 vice presidential nominee of the Republican Party. But he’s certainly open to the possibility that he would accept the job.
During a visit Monday to a high school in Plainsboro, N.J., Christie said he could be convinced to join the Republican presidential ticket.
"He might be able to convince me," Christie said in reference to Romney, according to Matt Katz of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “He’s a convincing guy.”

Romney picks Beth Myers to head his VP search

The presumptive Republican nominee tells ABC News’ Diane Sawyer that he’s appointed Beth Myers, one of his closest advisers, to oversee the vetting process for his vice presidential running mate.

"I have selected someone who has been a counselor of mine for a number of years, Beth Myers," Romney told Sawyer in an interview set to air on ABC’s "World News" and "Nightline." "She was my chief of staff when I was governor. I’ve asked her to be the person who oversees the process of the vice presidential selection and vetting an analysis, and so she’s begun that process and is putting together the kinds of things you need to do to vet potential candidates."

Myers, who previously managed Romney’s 2008 Republican presidential bid, is one of the former governor’s longest serving advisers and is personally close to the candidate and his wife, Ann, who is also expected to play a pivotal role in helping Romney choose a No. 2 to join the GOP ticket.

"My career choice was to be a mother and I think all of us need to know we need to respect choices women make." 
—Ann Romney responds to Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen’s remark that the wife of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee hasn’t “worked a day in her life.”
