The biggest buzz will be the VP pick by Senator Barack Obama. The Democrats will be praising the pick and the Republicans will be downplaying the pick. Expect the Democratic convention in Denver to receive a ton of attention.

The lack of knowledge of the number of homes he owns by Senator John McCain will receive plenty of discussion.

The situation in the republic of Georgia should receive discussion along with the unfolding events in Pakistan following the resignation of President Musharraf.

ABC "This Week" - Senator Bob Casey (D-Pa.), Governor Janet Napolitano (D-AZ), Senator Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Rep. Jack Clyburn (D-S.C.) and former Clinton campaign chair Terry McAuliffe. It will all be about the VP pick and the Democratic convention.

NBC "Meet the Press" - Caroline Kennedy, one of two members of Obama's VP selection committee and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calf.). Expect Pelosi to be asked about her failure to bring up the off-shore oil drilling vote prior to Congress adjourning for vacation.

CBS "Face the Nation" - Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius, Pa. Governor Ed Rendell, and Illinois Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. Expect the off-mike comment made by the Reverend Jesse Jackson to be brought up - His son expressed disappointment with his father when this came out.
