White House Seeks GOP Help on Immigration

The White House has reached out to former Bush administration officials for help in jump starting immigration reform in the House, Politico reports.

"In closed-door meetings, they have urged the White House to find a way to reach out to the GOP that doesn't center on Obama banging the podium telling Speaker John Boehner to bring a bill to the floor. During the Senate debate, Obama mostly stayed out of the limelight, for fear his involvement would end any hope of a bipartisan success. But his staffers were heavily involved behind the scenes."
