Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" Lineup

George Wenschhof

As the Republican primaries and caucuses near, many of the presidential candidates will be appearing on the Sunday morning shows.

Mitt Romney will be on "Republican friendly" Fox News, Newt Gingrich shows up on CBS "Face The Nation", Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann is on NBC "Meet The Press", and Jon Huntsman is on CNN "State of The Union".

Gingrich continues to lead in the polls, but anything can happen in the January 3 Iowa caucuses. Romney continues to be the favorite of insiders to receive the Republican nomination due to money, organization and steadiness of his campaign.

ABC "This Week" will have an interesting discussion between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), columnist George Will, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich. Frank, who recently announced he was not running for reelection, is always good for a good one-liner or two.

S. Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, who endorsed Mitt Romney this week, will be on NBC "Meet The Press". Her endorsement was a big "get" for Romney, in a state where Gingrich was polling far ahead.

Also, on "Meet The Press", will be House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). He will surely give his side on the recent Defense appropriations bill, the 1 Trillion Omnibus bill, and a two month extension on the payroll tax, unemployment benefits, and medicare doctor reimbursements.
