An article today in The Hill starts out describing House Minority Whip Eric Cantor’s unsuccessful attempts to schedule some face time with Speaker Pelosi.

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) says he has requested to meet privately with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) this year, but has been repeatedly rebuffed.

In an interview with The Hill, the minority whip said, “I have been told that Speaker Pelosi doesn’t like to meet with Republicans … I would say that is the case in my instance. I have put in requests to meet with her and have yet to be responded to.”

But it segues into a fairly long and not unadmiring profile of the young Virginia congressman, supplemented by excerpts from the reporters’ interview.
