Leaks from the Bush-Obama meeting November 11, 2008

Generally, presidential level meetings such as this are considered confidential.  It looks like the Obama side didn’t want to keep that sacred, as many leaks are rapidly becoming public this morning.

Rumors this morning suggest that Mr. Obama asked Mr. Bush to reconsider a bailout for the auto industry.  Mr. Bush seems to be open to the idea, but only if Congressional Democrats back a bailout bill, and possibly support the Columbian free trade pact.

Not an auspicious beginning for the Obama side…keeping these issues quiet until they are ready for public consumption is often essential for success in Washington.
