"Why are you a Democrat?" contest for the Democratic National Convention. Or if you're feeling a bit mischievous, there's always the "Why are you a Republican?" contest too.

This morning looks like concern troll heaven. We have oilman and Bushie supporter T. Boone Pickens on FOXNews Sunday to promote his alternative energy program, Cahleefornya's Governator Arnold Schwarzeneggar on This Week, reportedly to blast the man he endorsed in 2004, George W. Bush, for not taking Global Climate Change seriously, McCain surrogate Carly Fiorina on Meet the Press to tell us how McSame cares about the women and the economy--really, along with the ultimate concern troll, DLC chair Harold Ford, no doubt to assure us that Obama's tack to the center is EXACTLY the right tactic to win him votes from the MaverickMan.

ABC's "This Week" - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, R-Calif.

CBS' "Face the Nation" - Israeli Ambassador Sallai Meridor; Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and Richard Lugar, R-Ind.

NBC's "Meet the Press" - Carly Fiorina, adviser to John McCain; Sen. Claire Mccaskill, D-Mo.; Republican strategist Mike Murphy; Harold Ford Jr., chairman of the Democratic Leadership Council.

CNN's "Late Edition" - Sens. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., and Chris Dodd, D-Conn.; Govs. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., and Janet Napolitano, D-Ariz.; Nancy Pfotenhauer, adviser to McCain; Jason Furman, adviser to Barack Obama; Iraqi national security adviser Mowaffak al-Rubaie.

"Fox News Sunday" - T. Boone Pickens, chairman of the energy investment fund BP Capital and creator of an alternative energy plan.

"The Chris Matthews Show" - Panel: Dan Rather, Kelly O'Donnell, Cynthia Tucker, Howard Fineman. Topics: Can Barack Obama really expand the electoral map? Is McCain's staff shakeup a bad omen for November?

So what's catching your eye this morning?

Can you help us out?
