An Unlikely Friendship

On C-SPAN this morning, Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) described his close friendship with President Obama despite their extreme ideological differences.

Said Coburn: "I try to write him about every week or two. Write him a note, encourage him. No one has a tougher job than he does... We came into the Senate together, and I just have a lot of admiration for him. I'm 180 degrees from him on policy on most issues. But I think he's a wonderful man."

Coburn notes his relationship with Obama is "by far" much closer than he has with former President George W. Bush.

Here's the video clip from C-SPAN:
