Oh my god, it's soooo hard being president, world leaders and celebrities always want to talk to me, and I have to make really important decisions all the time because I have so much power. How was Disneyland?

Obama and Romney are meeting for lunch on Thursday. Will they become friends or frenemies? And what will they talk about? We may never know, because reporters are barred from the private date, The Ticket reported. "There will be no press coverage of the meeting," the White House announced.

The White House statement notes that it will be the first opportunity for the former opponents to meet since the election. Romney will also be meeting with his former running mate Rep. Paul Ryan, the New York Times reported

In a press conference on November 14, Obama suggested that he just wants to have a nice, civilized conversation with his once-bitter rival “There are certain aspects of Governor Romney’s record and his ideas that I think could be very helpful,” Obama had said, according to Reuters. “To give you one example, I do think he did a terrific job running the Olympics. And you know, that skill set of trying to figure out how do we make something work better applies to the federal government.”
