Wonder, by Natalie Merchant.
Happy Mother's Day! I have disappointed my babies by not sleeping in and thwarting their effort to bring me breakfast in bed in order to bring you fine people the Sunday morning news schedule. So I hope you indulge me with a little tribute to my own babies. This song was on the radio constantly the summer I was pregnant with my eldest and it was actually the song I heard as we made our short trip to the hospital to have her. In a way, it was a reassuring confirmation of that amazing event, and even today, I believe that Fate smiled and Destiny laughed at the cradle of my wonder of a daughter.
Having waxed poetic on the best thing that ever happened to me, how anti-climactic our Sunday schedule is. Fox's favorite business person will be on This Week, no doubt saying the McCain will be as good a president as she was at HP. Axelrod vs. Wolfson will go round #4,302 since the campaign started on Fox News Sunday and John Edwards will play coy on his endorsement on Face the Nation.
ABC's "This Week" - Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.; Carly Fiorina, adviser to John McCain's campaign.
CBS' "Face the Nation" - Former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C.; Terry McAuliffe, campaign chairman for Hillary Rodham Clinton.

"The Chris Matthews Show" Panel: Ron Allen, Katty Kay, Michelle Cottle and John Heilemann. Topics:How will Barack Obama win over Hillary Clinton's supporters? What will Hillary's next career move be? Meter Questions: Will Obama pick Clinton as his running mate? YES: 3 NO: 9 Was Obama's rebuke of Wright enough to stop the GOP from using Wright this fall? YES: 0 No: 12
So grab that steaming cup of coffee with me (thanks, kids!) and tell me what's catching your eye this morning.
