Good news on the state budget: It seems the governor will finally meet with all four legislative leaders to discuss their differences. Bad news on the state budget: Gov. Bruce Rauner says he doesn't expect much to come of it. And yet: "I wouldn't give up hope so soon," House Speaker Michael Madigan said of the governor's remarks.

Plus: Some thought the governor and his longtime pal Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel would become frenemies, but lately it seems they're on the way to being just plain enemies.
