  • C-Span Washington Journal:7:45am – Thomas Schaller, Baltimore Sun, National Political Columnist | Article; 8:30am – Newspaper Articles & Viewer Calls; 9am – Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis (Ret.), Human Events, Columnist | Column; 9:30am – Trita Parsi, Author, “Treacherous Alliance”.
  • NBC Meet the Press: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., and former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan.
  • ABC This Week: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., and filmmaker Ken Burns.
  • CBS Face the Nation: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y.
  • CNN Late Edition: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y.; Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt; French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner; Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb.; former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski; former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
  • Fox News Sunday: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., former House Speaker Newt Gingrich; and filmmaker Ken Burns.
  • I can sum it up with a single sentence: “A whole lotta Hillary and a few extras.” If you are a Hillary fan, you are in luck today — because it’s a five show morning for Sen. Clinton today. (Taylor calls it the “campaign grand slam.”) If you are not a big fan…put on a second pot of coffee, because you are gonna need it. >(And someone tell Oklahoma Kiddo not to turn on the telly. *g* For his own good…)

    For those interested in some horse race analysis, the NYTimes has a pseudo-behind-the-scenes as they want you to see them anyway glimpse into some of the campaign back and forth between the Clinton, Obama and Edwards camps. Speaking of Obama, Digby has a piece on the fetid swamp that passes for Republican banter and radio discourse.

    What’s catching your eye in the news or on the blogs this morning?

    Today’s photo is a black-throated green warbler via the always awesome Julie’s Magic Light Show.  Love this shot — you can almost feel the fuzzy little underbelly feathers, can’t you? 

    PS — Twolf1 found a cozy little item worth noting

    The President has named Adam Belmar to be Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Director of Communications for Production. Mr. Belmar currently serves as Senior Producer of “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” at ABC News. Prior to this, he served as Senior Producer of “Good Morning America” at ABC News. Earlier in his career, he served as a Producer at the McLaughlin Group and Tribune Broadcasting. Mr. Belmar received his bachelor’s degree from Boston University.

    It is a small world, after all.  At least, when you compare it to this find from Mauimom (via the WaPo):

    Chalk it up to vacation schedules: Greenspan and his wife, Andrea Mitchell, settled on the date with co-hosts Jim and Kate Lehrer, Michael and Afsaneh Beschloss, and Don and Mary Graham while all were scattered at various summer retreats. Greenspan and Mitchell (both Jewish but not all that observant) didn’t register that the date coincided with the religious holiday — which begins at sundown tomorrow — before 200 invitations were sent.

    Wouldn’t want to bruise the gin in the shake-up for the Georgetown cocktail set, now would we?  All the Beltway is a giant cocktail weenie.  Or a Beach Boys song gone awry.  (YouTube)
