Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum battled each other for months, trading attacks over the Massachusetts health care plan, who was the true fiscal conservative and each other's records. Now the one-time foes for the Republican presidential nomination are sitting down Friday in Pittsburgh not to hash over their differences, but instead to get to know each other better and discuss what role Santorum may play in helping Romney, according to Santorum aides. The two had a phone conversation when Santorum suspended his campaign on April 10, and they briefly chatted when they both spoke to the National Rifle Association meeting. No photo-op of the two hand-shaking their differences away is planned. The campaigns are trying to make sure the session is completely private. Don't expect any statements to the cameras after showing how much they now agree on. Only Romney and Santorum are expected to be in the room during the meeting, and there is no planned agenda.
