WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican congressional leaders say they're willing to work with President Barack Obama — as long as it's on their terms.

House speaker-in-waiting John Boehner (BAY-nur)said late Tuesday that the midterm elections likely to flip control of the House to the Republicans delivered a clear message to the Democratic president: Change course. To the extent that Obama is willing to do so on GOP priorities like slashing spending and shrinking government, they'll work with him.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who will remain in the Senate minority, said Obama's use of his veto pen will tell voters whether they should elect a new president in 2012.

Tuesday's elections appear set to end Nancy Pelosi's four years in the speaker's post that is second-in-line to the presidency.
