ObozoTrade Horse-Trades

A couple of sentences from Politico's story on ObozoTrade can be explained in citizen's terms:

...Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has been holding small meetings with lawmakers in his office as he seeks to maximize Republican “yes” votes — and he huddled late Tuesday with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to address some unresolved spending and procedural issues....

... The White House, meanwhile, is working with House GOP leadership to solidify Democratic support....

What do those terms "small meetings", "huddled", and "working with"?

They mean that Boehner and Obozo are giving away envelopes stuffed with Chamber of Commerce checks--or other "favors"--to Congress-critters who are "undecided."
