Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" 11-2-2008

George Wenschhof

This is the last Sunday morning prior to Election Day on Tuesday, November 4th. Rick Davis, the campaign manger for McCain and David Axelrod. the chief strategist for the Obama campaign will appear on several of the shows.

Expect continued speculation as to who will be the next President. Here on Air-it-Out with George, we will publish on Sunday, November 2nd, our last electoral vote update prior to the election. So check back to see those numbers and perhaps a prediction for Tuesday.

Secondary discussion on Sunday morning will likely center on Democratic pick ups in the Senate and the House. Projected Democratic gains in the Senate have ranged from 6 to 9 and gains in the House have ranged from 20 to 40.

Perhaps they will talk about former chief of staff for President Ronald Reagan, Ken Duberstein endorsing Barack Obama.

Here is the lineup:

NBC "Meet The Press" - Tom Brokaw will interview Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.) who lost a close election in 2004 when Ohio was a pivotal state. Also former Senator Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) who ran for the Republican Presidential nomination earlier this year.

The roundtable discussion will include David Gregory, Chuck Todd, Michele Norris and David Broder. Chuck Todd, who is very good, will give his update on the electoral vote.

CBS "Face The Nation" - Bob Schieffer will interview David Axelrod, chief strategist for the Obama campaign and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). Also the chairs of the Republican and Democratic Senate Campaign Committees: Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and John Ensign (R-Nev.). Let's see what they say about the prospects of the Democrats reaching a filibuster proof 60. Also expect some discussion on the Elizabeth Dole race in North Carolina who is behind in the polls to democrat Kay Hagen, 53% to 44%.

ABC "This Week" - George Stephanopoulos has Rick Davis the McCain campaign manager and David Axelrod, the chief strategist for the Obama campaign.

The roundtable discussion will have George Will, Donna Brazile, Mark Halperin, and Matthew Dowd.

Fox News Sunday - Chris Wallace has David Plouffe, the Obama campaign manager. Unlike Rick Davis, Plouffe has not catered to the press, instead preferring to just do his job. Rick Davis will also appear. Karl Rove will give his take on the electoral map.

CNN "Late Edition" - Wolf Blitzer has a full lineup. From battleground state Pennsylvania, he has Senators Bob Casey (D) and Arlen Specter (R). He also has four Governors: Deval Patrick (D-Mass.), Tim Kaine (D-Va.), Mark Sanford (R-SC), and Tim Pawlenty (R-Minn.).
