CNN's State of the Union Host Candy Crowley aptly put it at the top of her show Sunday: Four of the last six presidents were governors.
Governors descended upon Washington this week for the annual National Governors' Association meeting. They also filled the hot seats on the Sunday talk shows.
That inevitable question was asked. The one about running for president.
Guess what. Some actually answered the question.
But Republican Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana was not one them.
"I haven't spent one second thinking about any job other than the one I was hired to do," he said on "State of the Union."
Neither was Gov. Jay Nixon, D-Missouri: "We really do have a lot to get done in the next three years in the Show-Me State." (Boring).
Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley was slightly more straightforward. He's "looking at that."
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said, "I don't know."
Some more candor came from Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who in one word said he's not ruling out a 2016 bid. (He's headed to Iowa next week.)
And Democratic Gov. Dan Malloy of Connecticut was quite honest: "I am not going to be a candidate for president."
Scandal, part 1: Noticeably absent from the Sunday circuit was New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, this year's head of the Republican Governors Association and potential 2016 presidential candidate. In case you forgot, he's been under fire for extreme traffic jams on the busy George Washington Bridge for apparent political retribution.
Scandal, part 2: Another governor under fire, however, did appear on a Sunday program. Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin chose friendly territory but was aggressively questioned on "Fox News Sunday" about newly released documents that reveal illegal activity. When Walker was running for governor in 2010, he ordered his staff as then-Milwaukee County Executive to hold a daily conference call with his political campaign, which is illegal in Wisconsin.
On "Fox News Sunday," Walker blamed the Democratic party for churning up "old news" for political gain.
Agree to agree when not disagreeing: On "State of the Union" the two Democratic and two Republican governors also talked a little bit about policy, including gun rights, the death penalty and pot -- issues on which they mostly disagreed.
But they all agreed that states' rights are a great thing -- a "high" component "of the American experiment," Pence said.
They also will have a unified message -- in part -- during their meeting with President Obama Monday, insisting that National Guard strength not be cut.
"There is a common agreement amongst all 50 governors that we shouldn't go back to pre- 9/11 standards," Walker said.
Benghazi answers: It was a big day for Obama's National Security Adviser Susan Rice. It was the first time since her ill-fated remarks just days after the attack on the Benghazi that she appeared on a Sunday talk show.
Multiple networks asked. But NBC's "Meet the Press" nabbed her.
Rice said she doesn't regret anything about her September 2012 appearances when she said the attacks that killed four Americans were the result of an unruly "spontaneous" protest.
"That information turned out...not to be 100% correct," she said, but that neither she nor the Obama administration intentionally mislead Americans two months before the 2012 election.
On CBS' "Face the Nation," Republican Sen. John McCain didn't really respond to Rice's self-defense, but said her original comments are "embarrassing."
Obama on defense regarding Ukraine: In fact, McCain didn't have a lot of good things to say about Rice or Obama when it comes to American foreign policy, reaffirming an earlier statement that the President is "naïve."
As Ukraine is in the middle of an internal struggle with heavy influence from Russia's Vladimir Putin, McCain said: "The president said that this had nothing to do with the Cold War, the issue, the situation in Ukraine. In the eyes of Vladimir Putin, it does. He wants to restore the Russian empire."
