Two governors are hoping Democrats and Republican can work out a compromise on a health care —starting with the big meeting Thursday that President Obama has with members of Congress.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican, said if Washington lawmakers really want to serve the public, they’ll try to find “that sweet spot” of agreement.

Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a Democrat, said a compromise will mean Republicans giving the OK to some Democratic ideas and Democrats willing to take on some GOP ideas.

As Mr. Rendell put it, “We may not love your ideas, but we’ll take them.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, said he probably will attend the meeting and hopes it won’t be a waste of time.

The governors spoke on ABC’s “This Week.” Mr. McConnell was on “Fox News Sunday.”
