Romney senior advisers meet in Boston to discuss 2016: source

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney arrives with his wife Ann to speak at the Republican National Committee Winter Meeting in San Diego, CaliforniaRepublican Mitt Romney's senior advisers met in Boston on Friday as the 2012 Republican presidential nominee considers mounting a third run for the White House in 2016, said a person familiar with the event. The session took place a day after Romney met in Utah with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who is considering a presidential run of his own and is competing with Romney for donors and support from the Republican establishment. After that Utah meeting, there was no sign from either camp that Romney or Bush would be backing down from consideration of a 2016 run. A source familiar with the Boston meeting of Romney's loyal aides, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said they were discussing how to move forward with a campaign, should Romney decide to run.

Netanyahu basks in Congress invitation, but may shake U.S. ties

Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu attends cabinet meeting in JerusalemBy Luke Baker JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Benjamin Netanyahu's decision to accept an invitation to address the U.S. Congress just days before Israel's parliamentary election offers him invaluable pre-vote publicity, but may also have shaken the balance of U.S.-Israel ties. John Boehner, the Republican speaker of the House of Representatives, issued the invitation without consulting the White House, a breach of protocol since it is normally up to a head of state to invite a foreign leader. It also does not appear that Netanyahu, a right-winger who has a testy relationship with Barack Obama, let the president know about the invitation before accepting it, underscoring their increasingly tense ties. From Netanyahu's point of view, he achieves several goals, strutting his stuff in front of an applauding Republican-led Congress two weeks before Israelis vote on March 17.
