Obamas, Clintons broke bread at the White House last week

It turns out that the president’s recent meal with Republican senators wasn't the only dinner party he's held this month with famous folks in Washington.

The president and the First Lady dined at the White House with former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last week, the White House confirmed Friday.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest characterized the March 1 get-together as a “private dinner” but declined to offer further details about what was discussed.

While Obama’s former presidential rival Hillary Clinton has been taking time out of the spotlight after her departure from Foggy Bottom, former president Bill Clinton made headlines this morning with an op-ed advocating for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage act, which he signed in 1996.

The dinner was first reported by POLITICO.
