Reid: 'I hope Bush will be willing to work with us'
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- As the balance of power in the Senate hinges on the outcomes of races in Montana and Virginia, Senate Minority leader Harry Reid told reporters Wednesday he has asked President Bush to convene a bipartisan meeting of new congressional leaders as soon as possible.

"The President should convene a summit of congressional leaders on a bi-partisan basis, very quickly," Reid said at a news conference with Sen. Chuck Schumer, chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. "I would have no problem if he invited Secretary Baker and Congressman Hamilton to that because they're going to suggest, as we're going to suggest to the President personally at this summit, we've got to work together to change direction in Iraq. I hope the President will be willing to work with us."
