"The White House has dropped the ball as far as a White House that works with the Hill," the Virginia Republican said, pointing to former Virginia Gov. Douglas Wilder (D), who "had us to the [governor's] mansion all the time" when Cantor was a state legislator, without "a lot of fanfare, not a lot of [reporters] down there."
"I do think there is some sort of desire to see the Congress get along better," Cantor said. "This, perhaps, in the eyes of some, is the manifestation of that. I think there are a lot more meaningful ways of achieving that going forward."
