This Week (ABC): Host George Stephanopoulos talks to John McCain, then to Newt Gingrich.

First of all, though it will be last on Sunday, I want Blitzer (LE) to ask President Zardari what he thinks of Obama’s plans to march into his country and firing missile. What’s the protocol for that sort of thing between friendly nations?

We have to sit through John Kerry again (FNS), and at least this year brings us a more interesting Dem than they had in ’04. Obama will be on FTN.

I doubt we’ll see Axelrod appear with Schmidt on MTP. But to balance things out, McCain will be on TW, which has recently been scoring better in that ratings than has FTN.
