President Obama has extended an olive branch to Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and invited him to the White House this week to attend a signing ceremony for bipartisan jobs legislation.

Eight months ago, Obama and Cantor clashed sharply during negotiations to raise the debt limit.

At one heated meeting, Obama warned Cantor, “Don’t call my bluff” and walked out of the room. Senate Democrats often criticized Cantor during the tense talks for having a thin record of legislative accomplishment.
