Bush to D.C.
NPR's Brian Naylor reports from Capitol Hill, where President-elect George W. Bush met with congressional leaders of both parties. Bush's visit emphasized his desire to have a good working relationship with Democrats as well as Republicans, and everyone involved said the meeting was successful. But Bush has yet to convince many Republican lawmakers over the need for his $1.3 trillion tax cut. And there is still a lingering resentment among some Democrats who have questioned Bush's "legitimacy."
