Guess who's coming to Washington? White House to meet with the Big Two Point Five

In the never-ending saga between the Bush administration and Detroit's automakers, a tentative date has finally been set for a meeting.

During a radio interview, President Bush's political advisor Karl Rove confirmed that a discussion between GM, Ford and DaimlerChrysler would take place in mid-November. A specific date was not mentioned, mainly to allow the White House flexibility in it's scheduling.

A sit-down was originally planned in June of this year, with the conversation to center around health-care costs and alternative fuels. GM's Rick Wagoner and others in the industry have made it clear that a 'bailout' is not in the cards.
