Obama, Clinton Back Together, In The Senate, For Budget Votes

New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and Illinois Senator Barack Obama found themselves together again in the Senate chamber.

The two Democratic presidential rivals could be seen sitting down for a quiet little chat.

Clinton spoke animatedly, gesturing with her hands. Obama leaned in to listen, occasionally nodding his head and replying briefly.

Clinton's cell phone rang at one point; she silenced it and slipped it back into her pocket.

After three or four minutes, Obama gave Clinton a friendly pat or two on the back. They each smiled, and rose.

The occasion of their attendance in the Senate was an annual event in which dozens of amendments relating to the budget are debated and voted on in a single day.

Not only Obama and Clinton, but also Senator John McCain, the Republican nominee-in-waiting, was present.
