ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos Reports: Sens. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., spoke by phone Sunday night, the first time the presumptive Democratic nominee and his former rival have exhanged words since their private meeting in Washington weeks ago.

Clinton and Obama discussed retiring Clinton’s over $10 million in campaign debt, a conversation Democratic sources called "constructive".

They also discussed their forthcoming joint fundraising appearance in Washington on Thursday and the first campaign appearance together in Unity, New Hampshire, on Friday.

Sen. Clinton conceded the Democratic race to Obama on Saturday, June 7, just four days after splitting the final two primary contests in South Dakota and Montana.

The pair held a secret meeting in Washington at the home of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a Clinton supporter, prior to Clinton’s concession but had not spoken since that time.
