Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" 6-29-2008

Meet the Press - Tom Brokaw debuts as Host and has California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R). Anyone think McCain can win California? Recently, the terminator weighed in on the energy crisis and it did not sound like he endorsed McCain's proposal for off-shore and arctic drilling for oil. Also appearing will be Chuck Todd, a rising start and political director for NBC News.

Newsmakers - Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D-Mich) and chair of the Congressional Black Caucus will be interviewed on C-SPAN. Earlier in the week, she was discussing names that were asked about in regard to Obama's VP by his search committee. Expect more discussion on the possible pick.

Face the Nation - has an interesting lineup. General Wesley Clark, a supporter of Obama, Independent Connecticut Senator Joementum who supports McCain, and New York Times journalist David Sanger. Sanger will be asked about his reporting on North Korea which just blew up their nuclear processing plant.

This Week - Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty (R) who is on the short list as VP with McCain. Also, representative Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill). What should provide some sparks is Ralph Nader, who once again is running as an Independent for President. Nader was quoted earlier this week as saying Obama was trying to talk white so expect this to be part of the interview.

Late Edition - Terry McAuliffe, former national chair of the Clinton campaign will appear and presumable gush over Hillary's support of Obama. Also, Louisiana Governor Jindal (R) who is on the short list for McCain VP, and Governor Jon Corzine (D-NJ).
