bipartisanship, obama, congressMany Democrats worry that the president is abandoning them on key issues like taxes, and many Republicans say Obama ignored them in the past and are suspicious of what he’ll do now.

In Tuesday’s meeting, the president admitted he had failed to reach out to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader John Boehner.

But perhaps there’s room for progress. "The president seemed very genuine in his commitment to changing the working relationship we've had in the past," incoming House Majority Leader Eric Cantor tells Politico. "I want to take him at face value."
