Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" Cheat Sheet

George Wenschhof

This Sunday the conversation will be a bit of a hodge podge with topics likely to include the ongoing budget stalemate in Congress, President Obama's trip to Israel next week, comprehensive immigration reform, the CPAC conference, a new Pope, and the Republican fixation on the Benghazi tragedy.

Former Maryland Lt. Governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend makes an appearance on NBC "Meet The Press" where she will probably discuss the Global Virus Network which she chairs.

“The global community faces serious threats from new viruses every day, including SARS, Hantavirus, Dengue, West Nile and the specter of pandemic influenza viruses,” said Kennedy Townsend. “Our best defense is a rigorous and worldwide research network poised to engage in any outbreak situation. GVN is the very safety net that we need to protect the health of the world’s citizens from new viral threats. To put this safety net in place requires support from governments, the private sector, and citizens. I will bring all of these partners together to protect human health through GVN and its many partners.”
