After running grueling campaigns against each other President Obama will host former Massachusetts governor and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for a private lunch at the White House on Thursday.

This marks their first meeting since Obama defeated Romney in the 2012 Presidential election earlier this month.

Obama stayed true to his word, as he promised after he won the election to consult Romney before the end of the calendar year.

The two will also look to bridge the gap between the two parties as they face the upcoming “fiscal cliff” that will take effect if Congress is not able to come to an agreement on tax rates and economic plans.

“Governor Romney will have a private lunch at the White House with President Obama in the private dining room,” the White House said of the meeting, which will be closed to the media.

“It will be the first opportunity they have had to visit since the election.”

Reaching across the aisle and working with political opponents is a true sign of leadership, and it is commendable that both men are willing to do this.
