President Obama surpises House Speaker with birthday gift!
According to abcnews.go.com, "Constructive" was the buzzword of the day at the White House, following today's first fiscal cliff summit between President Obama and top congressional leaders.
President Obama and top congressional leaders on Friday convened their first "fiscal cliff" summit, seeking to avert an economically-toxic package of sweeping tax hikes and deep spending cuts that will take effect in 46 days without a bipartisan deal.
There was a moment of levity during the photo opportunity when Obama wished Boehner a happy birthday. Boehner turns 63 tomorrow, but Obama joked that the negotiators wouldn't embarrass him with a cake with so many candles.
All the major players used the word to describe the conversation that lasted 70 minutes in the Roosevelt Room.
