John McCain will meet with Barack Obama on Monday in Chicago. A statement from Obama’s transition office explains: “It’s well known that they share an important belief that Americans want and deserve a more effective and efficient government, and will discuss ways to work together to make that a reality. They will be joined in the meeting by Senator Lindsey Graham and Congressman Rahm Emanuel.” Jake Tapper reports, “Graham and Emanuel worked well together on negotiating the presidential debates.”
“Graham said that McCain and Obama are philosophically alike on budget reform, Social Security changes, earmark reform and immigration.
‘If the administration wants to move forward with immigration again, I stand ready to do that,’ Graham said.”
