With the election over, Barack Obama and John McCain are now scheduled to have what presumably is supposed to be a friendly meeting at Obama's transition headquarters on Monday.

In a statement, Obama spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said:

On Monday, President-elect Barack Obama and Senator John McCain will meet in Chicago at transition headquarters. It's well known that they share an important belief that Americans want and deserve a more effective and efficient government, and will discuss ways to work together to make that a reality. They will be joined in the meeting by Senator Lindsey Graham and Congressman Rahm Emanuel.
