Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" Lineup

George Wenschhof

On Sunday, most of the discussion will focus on the outcome of the Republican primary in S. Carolina today. Rick Santorum will appear on two of the morning political talk shows, hoping he had a good showing in S. Carolina. In addition, some of the "usual suspects" from S. Carolina such as Rep. James Clyburn (D) and Senators Lindsey Graham (R) and Jim DeMint (R) will be guests on the morning shows.

Other notables include House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who is battling to stay in his position, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R), a Romney supporter and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour (R), one who considered running for president who is currently catching heat for pardons he recently issued.

Unfortunately, for Santorum, Gingrich is receiving the latest "surge" vote, meaning Santorum could well end up last behind Texas Representative Ron Paul.

If, Santorum does come in last, he will need to reassess staying in the race. Santorum also has a problem with his appearance. He comes across looking like a college student and hardly presidential.

A win by Newt Gingrich in S. Carolina, followed by Santorum withdrawing and endorsing Gingrich would change the dynamics in the republican primary. Florida would suddenly become a tough state for Romney to win, even with his money and organization. has a quick video preview of the morning shows below:
