But the exchange - part of his election-year attempt to generate more bipartisanship in Washington - is unlikely to alter Republican behavior, say strategists and former members of Congress from both parties.

LET'S GO back in time to about March 1939 in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Luciano Ibolto is standing on a corner cranking out the song "Whispering" on a hand organ. It is a music box, about a foot square, operated by a hand crank; it rests on an adjustable pole.Ibolto's performance is a busy one. With one hand he is turning the crank of the organ. With the other, he holds a leash upon which is his monkey, Julia. She wears a doll-size red jacket, a yellow skirt and a red cap with a chin strap, similar to an old bellboy's hat.Julia collects coins from the crowd, then quickly stashes them into a deep pocket of her dress.
