Sunday Talking Head Thread

Here's the Sunday Talking Head line-up for today: 

C-Span's Washington Journal:  7:45am – Melody Barnes, Center for American Progress, Exec. Vice Pres. for Policy | 100 Days Agenda; 9am – Andrei Piontkovsky, Hudson Institute, Visiting Sr. Fellow; 9:30am – Julia Choucair, Carnegie Endowment for Int'l Peace, Associate.

This Week (ABC):  National  security advisor Stephen Hadley; Sen. Evan Bayh; Gov. Tom Vilsack; George Will, Martha Radditz and David Corn; actor Richard Dreyfuss.

Meet the Press (NBC):  National security adviser Stephen Hadley, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich.; Sen. John Warner, R-Va.; and former President Jimmy Carter.

Face the Nation (CBS):  National security adviser Stephen Hadley, Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn.; and Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb.

Late Edition (CNN):  Prince Turki Al-Faisal, Saudi ambassador to the United States; Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz; U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad; Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass.; and Iraqi Minister of Industry Fawzi Hariri.

FOX News Sunday:  Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del.; Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer and Cathy Lanier, chief of police, Metropolitan (D.C.) Police Department.

Gee, think they'll be talking about Iraq?  If Stephen Hadley is the best public salesperson that the Bush Administration has going for them, they are in deeper doo-doo than I thought.

The above photo is a swan round-up in Germany — the local municipality in question herds all of its swans out of the local waterways and indoors where they are housed and fed and cared for all winter until they can safely be released again in more mild weather in the spring.  For more on swans try here and here — great stuff.

Somehow, a photo of someone trying to herd wild swans seemed oddly appropriate for this morning's line-up.  Go figure.
