1. SOUNDBITE - PRESIDENT OBAMA

So we know we've got more work to do, more jobs to create, more children to educate, more roads to repair. The tatask before us is to find smart, common sense solutions to each of these challenges that we can move forward on. I'm looking for good partners, because while nobody in this room sees eye-to-eye on everything, we know that when we work together, Democrats and Republicans, north, south, east and west, we can accomplish so much more than we can when we're on our own.'

2. SOUNDBITE: GOVERNOR JACK MARKELL / (D) DELAWARE

You've tackled the big issues, there are many to address and dealing with them all at once is much like 3D chess. One thing for sure is certain -- you don't let issues fester. You get to deal with education and health care, and even the sequester. (Laughter and applause.)

STORYLINE:

President Barack Obama is calling on governors of both parties to work with him.

The president, during a White House dinner Sunday, told dozens of state leaders, "We've got more work to do." They were in Washington for the annual meeting of the National Governors Association.

Obama did not directly mention deep federal budget cuts set to take effect March 1. He's expected to discuss the budget stalemate with governors during a Monday meeting at the White House.

The president says he's looking for "good partners" among Republican and Democrat governors from across the nation.

Congress has until Friday to prevent a series of automatic cuts expected to clog air travel, reduce education funding, and furlough hundreds of thousands of government workers and contractors.
