On Wednesday, President Bush met with the Congressional Black Caucus, and also with a 24-member panel of black clergy and business leaders — many of whom supported him in the 2004 election. NPR's Tony Cox looks at what was said in both meetings, and the president's recent attempts to reach out to African Americans on both sides of the aisle.
