After Republicans' sweeping election wins, President Barack Obama met Friday with congressional leaders at the White House, saying the American people want their leaders to find common ground for governing. But House Speaker John Boehner dimmed any hopes of a new spirit of compromise, warning the president "not to play with matches" by taking unilateral action on immigration reform. VOA's Cindy Saine reports some analysts say it looks like Washington may be headed for political paralysis.
