The White House and governors

The first family will welcome some out-of-town guests to the White House on Sunday: a gathering of the nation's governors.

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are hosting the National Governors Association for the annual Governor's Ball. The president will offer up a toast to the gathering.

One year ago, Obama was lecturing and hectoring governors, telling them to await instructions from Washington.

Today, he's trying to curry favor with them.

What a difference a year makes.
