john harwood joins us now. john, i wonder what the white house's latest pinch to manchin. he was definitive in interviews saying, no on ending the filibuster. expressed discomfort, you might say with opposition to using reconciliation again. but didn't exactly draw a line in the sand there. what is the white house read of his position? >> well, jim, the pitch from the white house is first to the republicans that will be joining democrats in that meeting today. you supported infrastructure projects in the past. we proposed a whole bunch of infrastructure projects in this package. let's see if we can make a deal. the message to joe manchin who will not be in that meeting is look here, we're trying to compromise with republicans. they expressed in skepticism. joe manchin wants a serious effort made. they're sending out the most effective communicator to argue that don't get hung up on the issue of whether the elements of our proposal fall into a traditional definition of infrastructure. there are things necessary for a prosperous economy and the american people support them.
