Obama Hits the Links with Republicans

President Obama's "monthslong quest for a mulligan with Senate Republicans switched venues Monday from swanky dinners to the golf course, as he took three senators out for a round," Roll Call reports.

"Obama is set to tee off with Republicans Saxby Chambliss of Georgia and Bob Corker of Tennessee and Democrat Mark Udall of Colorado, per a pool report. And for a president who doesn't like losing, Obama sure picked a killer crew."

"According to Golf Digest's rankings of Washington's top 150 golfers, Udall and Corker are the two best golfers among D.C.'s elected officials, recording 2 and 2.1 handicaps in 2011, respectively. Chambliss' game is nothing to scoff at either, as he has a 7.4 handicap -- about a stroke behind the best golfer in the White House, Joseph R. Biden Jr."
