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?

ABC's "This Week" - Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas; Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass.; American Petroleum Institute President and CEO Red Cavaney; Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University.

CBS' "Face the Nation" -Carly Fiorina, adviser to John McCain's campaign; Gov. Bill Richardson, D-N.M.

NBC's "Meet the Press" - Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Joe Biden, D-Del.

CNN's "Late Edition" - Govs. Tim Pawlenty, R-Minn., and Richardson; Reps. Robert Wexler, D-Fla., and Eric Cantor, R-Va.; former Labor Secretary Robert Reich; Douglas Holtz-Eakin, McCain adviser; Ahmed Rashid, author of a new book on Afghanistan, Pakistan and Central Asia.

"Fox News Sunday" - Former Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D.; former Gov. Tom Ridge, R-Pa.; Earth Day Network President Kathleen Rogers.

<corrected. this is a rerun>: "The Chris Matthews Show" - Panel: Katty Kay, Jim Cramer, Kathleen Parker and Andrew Sullivan. Topics: Can McCain beat Obama by painting him as a tax-raising liberal?Chris's thoughts on Tim Russert's mastery of politics. Meter Questions: Can McCain escape the bad economy by warning that Obama will raise taxes? YES: 5 NO: 7 Will Hillary Clinton's supporters rally behind Barack Obama? YES: 12 NO: 0.
