Today's video: Not easy being GOP

In an interview last week, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers fairly succinctly described the problem a Republican governor would be in right now when faced with the prospect of taking or not taking federal money from the economic stimulus package.

"It would be very difficult to say 'No' to money from the federal government," the Eastern Washington Republican, who voted against the bill, said.

The Sunday talking head shows gave lots more depth and context to that dilemma, with Republican governors taking opposing sides.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal plans to say 'No' to some things.


Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is saying 'Yes.'
