The first family will welcome some out-of-town guests to the White House on Sunday: a gathering of the nation's governors.http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2010-02-21-obamas-ball-governors_N.htm
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.
