    with just Boehner and Obama, which Boehner came out of as pissed off as ever, there is nothing written in stone that says Reid and Pelosi aren't involved, of course they're involved, with the WH staff at the very least.

      In August of 2011 the Reid and Pelosi were not included in the final discussions that produced the "compromise" plan of sequester and the "Super Duper Committee". That was strictly a negotiation between the White House, Boehner, Cantor, and McConnell.

      I wouldn't expect the White House to include Reid or Pelosi in any negotiation and their entire involvement is almost certainly to get a whip count of how many Democratic votes they could produce based on proposed "deals" and nothing more just like August 2011.
