John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi had a short, informal meeting today in the corridors of the Capitol.
The three-minute-long encounter started when the Democratic leader walked hurriedly into the Speaker's Lobby for today's pro-forma session, passed through the double-doors and sat waiting on the floor for the speaker, who presided over the short session.
Pelosi approached Boehner as he walked down from the dais before they left the floor and walked through the lobby, past Ways and Means and through the Rayburn Room to Pelosi's office. At points during the walk, Pelosi put her hand on the speaker's back. Their conversation was mostly inaudible.
"Ratios, they said we don't have the ratios yet," Pelosi said. Boehner's reply was short before he walked off.
"Yeah, I don't know," he said.
