Guess who’s coming to dinner? Well, lunch, actually…

President Obama has invited Mitt Romney for lunch at the White House.

The one-time rivals will meet tomorrow for a private meal in the White House dining room. It will be their first encounter since the final debate of the presidential campaign.

In his re-election victory speech, the president said he wanted to sit down with Romney to talk about ideas on how to move the country forward.

Romney will also meet with his vice presidential running mate Paul Ryan when he’s in Washington tomorrow.

Romney, who has been staying in his La Jolla, California home,  has largely stayed off the public radar following his loss on Nov. 6. However he has been photographed at Disneyland, going to the movies and hitting the gym with his wife.
