Just consider this Sunday update of our best weekend content your Oscars pre-show:

  • Walter Alarkon has been at the National Governors Association meeting all weekend, and reports on Gov. Ed Rendell's stimulus skepticism and the GOP debate over whether the center or the right will be the ticket to winning in the future.

  • J. Taylor Rushing has been following the Sen. Roland Burris saga, and teams up with Alarkon for a report on Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn reflecting on the "tainted" Burris pick. Plus, Russ Feingold and David Dreier have seized on the scandal to push for special-election requirements on Senate replacements.

  • Mike O'Brien blogs on George P. Bush calling moderate Charlie Crist "D light." Either that's the group that sang "Groove Is in the Heart," or Democrat Light.

  • Lieberman on Lieberman: Sen. Joe, visiting Benjaming Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman on their first day of coalition-building, says Washington relations will be A-OK.
