Morning C&L Gang. The Sunday Talking Head line-up is up and ready for the reading for everyone.

In reviewing the line-up, it looks like a full court press for several issues, including the US Attorney firings, the troop escalation in Iraq, the abysmal foreign policy failure that is the Bush Administration, and the betrayal of Valerie Plame Wilson and the state of the intelligence community at the moment. Take your pick -- it looks like a not-so-cheery line-up for George Bush fans.

People to look for this morning: Pat Lang on CNN's Late Edition, along with Zbigniew Brzezinski and Rep. Jack Murtha; and Sen. Pat Leahy on This Week. When you add in Sen. Chuck Shumer on Meet the Press and Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Face the Nation, I see a full court press on the US Attorney issue and am wondering how much we'll be hearing about whether Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has been less than forthcoming with Congress. (Hint: hopefully, a lot.)

Here's hoping there some news on a subpoena for Karl Rove. Don't know about you, but that's a reason to pour another cuppa coffee...somehow, an Irish coffee just seemed appropriate for this morning. (And if you are having a craving for soda bread, I shared a recipe yesterday.)

Can you help us out?
