There are literally dozens of major political events over the last several years that I would have loved to have been able to eavesdrop on. I would’ve loved to sit in on the actual meeting when Ronald Reagan decided to delay the hostages return for the first “October Surprise”.

And I’m sure Barack will make sure Romney has to take the LONG way through the White House, just so he can see exactly where he won’t be living this January. That being said, here are the three things I hope Barack and Mitt discuss during their little lunch adventure.
1. Tell ‘Em Why you Mad Barack: It’s normal for candidates running against each other to develop an intense dislike for one another, but I think Mitt and Barack reached a new level. I don’t even think they respected each other. Since there are no cameras around it’d be nice to think POTUS would call out Mitt’s son for… (continues)
