Bushes, Pelosis break bread together

From NBC's Mike Viqueira

A minor tidbit: It turns out that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul broke bread last night at the White House with President Bush and his wife, Laura.The evening began with a one-on-one meeting between the president and the speaker, after which they were joined for dinner by their spouses, according to Pelosi. Pelosi tells us that it is important to have a "good rapport" with the president -- and in fact, she says, that is exactly what they have.

It was the first time that the two couples had gotten together, according to Pelosi.
