President Barack Obama joked that he didn't have a cake for the Republican Speaker's birthday because his staff didn't know how many candles they'd need, to which Boehner replied, "yeah, right!?" and playfully elbowed the Commander in Chief. The two men then shook hands.

We'll see if this is simply a playful moment before the men duke it out with the nation hanging in the balance, or if this is a sign of a new day where more emphasis will be put on compromise by the Republican party. If the Republican party softens their staunch opposition to action on certain legislative action, it could be the result of a realization of the demographic realities of the changing US electorate, which became quite obvious on election night with Obama winning a second term fairly easily, despite having his multi-million-man-funded campaign matched dollar-for-dollar by a few thousand of the wealthiest American's backing Mitt Romney, who never failed to remind the American people of the stiff economic headwinds still facing the country.
