President Obama and Hillary Clinton have lunch at The White House


President Obama and Hillary Clinton enjoyed a private lunch together outdoors at The White House. There is lots of speculation about the lunch, but The White House said it was a friendly lunch. CNN reports that the official word from White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest is that the lunch was an "opportunity for the two, who saw each other on a pretty frequent basis over the course of the last four years, to have the chance to catch up."

CNN says the idea for lunch came about at the event launching the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas. CNN also says President Obama and Hillary Clinton have had regular phone calls and emails since Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State ended. The menu included grilled chicken, pasta jambalaya and salad. Take a look:
