Sunday Talking Head Thread

padjumperd.jpgHere’s the Sunday Talking Head line-up.   

C-Span’s Washington Journal:  7:45am – Linda Douglass, National Journal, Contributing Editor; 8:30am – Newspaper Articles & Viewer; 9am – Stephanie Miley, Fmr. Provincial Reconstruction Team Leader; 9:30am – Phoner From Khandahar, Afghanistan: Sarah Chayes, Author, The Punishment of Virtue: Inside Afghanistan After the Taliban  

ABC’s “This Week”:  National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley; Sens. John Warner, R-Va., and Richard Lugar, R-Ind.

CBS’ “Face the Nation”:  Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Mark Kimmitt, deputy assistant secretary of defense for the Middle East.

NBC’s “Meet the Press”:  Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Jim Webb, D-Va.; Republican strategist Mike Murphy and Democrat strategist Bob Shrum.

CNN’s “Late Edition”:  Sens. Joe Biden, D-Del., Trent Lott, R-Miss., and Jack Reed, D-R.I.; Hadley; and Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari.

“Fox News Sunday”:  Hadley and Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich.

I bet the green room at ABC is going to be awfully cheery this morning, given the troop reaignment bill that Lugar and Warner have decided to push through over the Bush Administration’s objections.  But then again, maybe it’s all kabuki…I mean, its the Beltway, so what are the odds?

I do think the Graham and Webb match-up on Meet the Press has some serious potential.  But that will depend on the questions and…well…I’m not holding my breath.

This morning’s bird photo comes from reader Lindy who thinks we are dealing with a Least Bittern.  Sure is a beautiful photo, and I’m so glad that she shared it.  What is catching your eye in the news or on the blogs this morning?
