President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, bitter campaign foes just weeks ago, have a lunch date at the White House. They'll have an eye on overlapping interests rather than the sharp differences that defined their presidential contest.

Obama and Romney will meet in the White House's private dining room today, fulfilling a promise Obama made in his victory speech the night of Nov. 6. It is their first meeting since the election.

White House spokesman Jay Carney says Obama had no specific agenda for the meeting, but he says Obama would like to discuss Romney's ideas for making government more efficient. Obama has proposed merging some functions of government related to business and has asked Congress for authority to undertake some executive branch reorganization.
