Sunday Morning 4-20-08 "Talking Heads"

All of the Sunday morning shows continue the trend of having their guests be surrogates of the democratic presidential candidates. CNN's "Late Edition" has former Senator Bill Bradley - Obama supporter and N.J. Governor Jon Corzine - Clinton supporter.

NBC "Meet the Press" has campaign strategists Geoff Garin - Clinton and David Axelrod - Obama. Mr. Garin supposedly has taken the position of Mark Penn who was demoted but kept on the campaign staff after meeting with Colombian officials. This after Senator Clinton's announced position has been in opposition to the trade agreement with Colombia. Howard Wolfson of the Clinton campaign has actually taken on a more public face with the Clinton campaign. Why Penn is still on the Clinton payroll remains a mystery unless it is due to large contracts with his firm on advertising development.

CBS "Face the Nation" has entertaining Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell who is a Clinton supporter and Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey a Obama supporter.

One of the topics sure to be discussed is the dueling health care plan ads being run on Television in Pennsylvania prior to their primary next Tuesday. Senator Clinton's ad talks about how the Obama plan leaves 15 million out in the cold. While Senator Obama's ad says the Clinton plan forces everyone to buy insurance even if they can't afford it.

The other hot topic will surely be follow up discussion on last Wednesday's debate debacle.
