The suspense! Usually, lawmakers exit a closed door meeting and head straight for the TV cameras. House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi were uncharacteristically quiet leaving their fiscal cliff meeting with President Obama this afternoon, but Pelosi’s getaway was anything but clean. Reporters anxious for a scoop managed to catch Pelosi searching the parking lot for her SUV.
Ok, pelosi can't find her car. Seriously.

Just what was going on in there? Must have been some intense negotiations.
@HansNichols That's a fiscal cliffhanger… Did she find it?

Pelosi can't find her car. Nobody tell her it went over the fiscal cliff and insurance isn't covering the damage.

Seriously, has anyone seen it? It has the giant novelty gavel on the roof.
She had to pass the car in order to find it RT @BuzzFeedAndrew Did Nancy Pelosi ever find her car?

Oh, in other news, no one else looked happy exiting from that meeting, either. Not even Sen. Harry Reid looked happy — not that we’d know what that looks like.
All four congressional leaders have now left the WH without making any statement. Majority Leader Reid looked downtrodden.

It looks like Boeher had his ride ready to go, and he’s not coming back.
Boehner staffers arrived back at the Capitol and said @SpeakerBoehner is not coming back here today.
