House Speaker John Boehner may have turned down invitations from President Barack Obama for a flight to Tucson aboard Air Force One and a White House state dinner with China’s president. But he’d be willing to hang out with Obama for 18 holes of golf, Politico reports.

Outgoing White House adviser David Axelrod told Bloomberg TV last week that chances are “good” for a golf outing between Obama and Boehner. Obama wants to cooperate with Republicans, "even to the point that he’d play golf with a guy who has a much lower handicap than he does," Axelrod says.
