Former presidential rivals Barack Obama and John McCain will have their first face-to-face meeting Monday at President-elect Obama’s transition office in Chicago.
“It’s well known that they share an important belief that Americans want and deserve a more effective and efficient government, and will discuss ways to work together to make that a reality,” Obama-Biden transition spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said in a statement.

Rahm Emanuel of Illinois.
