Sunday Morning - Maroon 5
We embark on our first Sunday news adventure without Tim Russert at the helm; Brian Williams will man the Meet The Press desk. But with any luck, we will keep the retrospectives to a minimum. I see plenty of opportunity for spin all over the dial: Oilmen on This Week to deflect blame of gas pricing (to the Democrats, no doubt), McCain surrogates on all the channels (though Obama doesn't have the same representation, curious that) and Rep. Robert Wexler on Late Edition. He's sure to be asked about the recent egregious House capitulation on FISA...will they also ask him about the impeachment stuff?
