(AP) WASHINGTON — Golf-loving Rep. John Boehner (BAY'-nur) says playing 18 holes with someone is a good way to get to know that person. That might be a hint from the House speaker-in-waiting to fellow golfer President Barack Obama.
Boehner is about an eight-handicap golfer and when asked on CBS' "60 Minutes" about being better than the president, Boehner said, "He understands that."
Aides say Boehner doesn't have much time for the game lately, and the Ohio Republican says he's never had an invitation to play with Obama.
Boehner says the two have talked a number of times about playing, but it just hasn't happened yet.
Boehner says that on the course, "You can't be somebody that you're not, because all of you shows up."
