Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" - Lineup for 7-27-2008

Expect a lot of talk surrounding Obama's trip abroad, the fairness of press coverage, and much speculation as to who will be the VP picks of the candidates. Also expect discussion on Obama's planned trip to a military hospital in Germany that was cancelled after the campaign received concerns from the Pentagon - has more here. Obama and McCain appear twice this morning.

NBC "Meet the Press" - Tom Brokaw has Senator Barack Obama for the entire hour. Lots to talk about as Obama has just returned home from a very successful overseas trip. Seems Obama is not afraid to challenge President George W. Bush or Senator McCain on their foreign policy positions. Malicki calling for a timetable for withdraw of U.S. troops from Iraq was also a huge boost for Obama.

ABC "This Week" - George Stephanopolous counters with Senator John McCain. McCain was pummeled this past week but managed to get the attention of the Press by saying he was not receiving fair coverage. Otherwise, he was flailing away and not making much sense as he tried to say "look at me" during the past week while Obama was overseas.

CBS "Face the Nation" - Republican Senator Chuck Hagel and Democratic Senator Jack Reed who accompanied Obama to Afghanistan and Iraq will be the guests. both are also rumored as on the short list for Obama VP. Hagel was making sense recently when he said "quit talking about the surge" - he was referring to McCain's repeatedly saying - "hey, it was me who was right about the surge" Hagel correctly points out the time is appropriate to be discussing the next step - political solutions in Iraq and their ability to defend themselves.

Fox News Sunday - Carl Rove will appear, who on Friday, when speaking at a fundraiser for the Iowa Republican Party had peace protesters try to "citizen arrest" him for war crimes - has more here - and that is just the tip of the iceberg - he still is ignoring a congressional subpoena. Also appearing will be Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill, a supporter of Obama and South Dakota Senator John Thune, a supporter of McCain.

CNN "Late Edition" - Wolf Blitzer interviews separately both McCain and Obama. CNN broadcasts from the Unity journalist's forum in Chicago where Obama will speak. McCain declined.
