President Barack Obama says he hasn't yet scheduled a meeting with Republican Mitt Romney.
At a news conference Wednesday, Obama said he hopes to have the chance to talk with Romney before the end of the year.
Obama said the election was only a week ago, and that everybody needs to catch their breath.
He said he thinks Romney did a terrific job with the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. Obama said he's not pre-judging how the former Massachusetts governor may be interested in helping the country, nor does he have a specific assignment -- but Obama said he does want to talk about some of Romney's ideas.
