Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" Lineup

George Wenschhof

Lots to talk about on Sunday as the race for the Republican Party nomination for president continues to take twists and turns. Rick Santorum will make the rounds as he tries to build momentum after his three state sweep of caucuses on Tuesday.

The results of the unusual week long caucuses in Maine will be announced Saturday evening at 7:30 PM ET. Mitt Romney and Rep. Ron Paul are expected to battle for first as neither Newt Gingrich or Santorum have campaigned aggressively in the state.

Also, the roll out of new White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew takes place as he appears on all of the morning shows.

The reversal by President Obama on rules pertaining to insurance contraceptive coverage is sure to be discussed. The initial announcement resulted in a fast and furious denunciation of the policy and exposed a rift among close advisers to the president.

President Obama is also set to proposed his annual budget which is expected to add another trillion to the deficit, which is sure to rise the level of Republican discourse in Congress.

Meanwhile, saber rattling continues in regard to Iran and their nuclear arms development program, prompting more talk concerning a preemptive strike against Iran.

In addition, the continued violent crackdown on dissidents in Syria by President Assad and the veto of a U.N. resolution by China and Russia providing for a transition to democracy in the country should receive some discussion Sunday morning.
