Sunday Morning - Velvet Underground
I remember this song from my childhood and had no idea until a couple of years ago that this was Lou Reed. Go figure that this came from the same man who gave us Heroin and Walk On The Wild Side. And like Reed, I'd like to think that this Sunday's shows show some diversity of product, a show of not trying to do the same thing time after time, but sadly, no such luck. Basically all the same faces, pushing all the same narratives. Holy Joe Lieberman will be on Face The Nation, no doubt to blame the Democrats for something in his unending search to kiss up to the Republican Party. Hopefully, Wes Clark will get a chance to rebut some of Lieberman's neo-con lies. Alternative presidential candidates Bob Barr and Ralph Nader will be on Late Edition and This Week, respectively. Given how disappointing the Democratic majority has acted this week, I just might pay a little more attention to them.
ABC's "This Week" - Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill.; Gov. Tim Pawlenty, R-Minn.; Ralph Nader, independent presidential candidate.
CBS' "Face the Nation" - Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn.; retired Gen. Wesley Clark.

"The Chris Matthews Show" - Panel: Katty Kay, David Gregory, Gloria Borger and David Brooks. Topics: Will Hillary's troops climb aboard the Obama bandwagon? What should Obama look for in a running mate? Meter Questions: Can McCain escape the bad economy by warning that Obama will raise taxes? YES: 5 NO: 7; Will Hillary get on board convincingly for Obama? YES: 9 NO: 3
So what's catching your eye this morning?
