The Sunday Morning Talk Shows: preview

FOX News Sunday (FNS): Host Chris Wallace will talk to surrogates about this little ad war: Chuckie Schumer for Obama and Lindsey Graham for McCain.

This Week (ABC): Host George Stephanopoulos chats with Speaker Nancy and then to former DHS Secretary Tom Ridge.

Meet the Press (NBC): Moderator Tom Brokaw talks to surrogates: Joe Lieberman for McCain and John Kerry for Obama.

Face the Nation (CBS): Host Bob Schieffer talks to Clinton Treasury Secretary (an asterisk) Bob Rubin and McCain advisor Carly Fiorina.

Late Edition (CNN): Host Wolf Blitzer talks to Claire McCaskill for Obama and Rob Portman for McCain. Then, of course, he’ll speak to his usual cast of thousands, including Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, who has a first-rate name.


We’re back to surrogates. MTP should be interesting, with Lieberman, who agrees with McCain on only one or two things, and Kerry for Obama, who can agree with any of the various positions taken by Obama at any given time.

Surrogate soup. It is an election year; it’s August.

I’ll have the review of these shows here at RedSate.com on Sunday.
