As the mating ritual continues today, Obama hosted congressional leaders from both parties at a White House cocktail party. The list of those invited includes:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
Representative Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland)
House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio)
Representative Eric Cantor (R-Va.)
Sen. Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.)
Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.)
Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ken.)
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.)
Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.)
Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.)
Sen. John Cornyn (R.Texas)

This all just hours after all 177 republicans in the House voted against the bill.
