WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will have lunch on Monday with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the White House said on Sunday.

They will have lunch in the president's private dining room, said the White House. It did not give a reason for the meeting.

Their meeting comes as Obama makes a push to resurrect Middle East peace talks and as speculation mounts that Clinton might run for president in 2016. The former first lady also served as a U.S. senator from New York from 2001 to 2009.

Is this meeting of the minds to have the President elect, Hillary, cover up the lame duck president Obama’s activities, or is it to cover up both of their handling of Benghazi? How on earth did the people of the United States ever elect such inept individuals to run what was once the greatest nation in the world?

7o rooms plus another five for the Transportation Security Agency at $225-$345 a night are booked at Martha’s Vineyard for President Obama’s eight-day vacation. So much for the have-nots…Obama should be ashamed of himself. Instead, he is a prideful thug.
