The summation scene from The Verdict (1981)

I remember when I had faith in justice. That was just so pre-Bush administration, wasn't it? And I desperately want to believe that we'll find it again, though I feel confident that it won't be on this Sunday's shows. Week 3 of the Palin no-show, ho hum. Barack Obama will appear on Face the Nation, while McCain will be on This Week, with puppetmaster and muckraker Newt Gingrich. Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari will be on Late Edition, perhaps to make sure McSame remembers his name correctly. And finally, Big Dog Bill Clinton will be on Meet the Press this morning. Given Brokaw's proclivity towards right wing framing, will we see another confrontation a la Wallace/Clinton?

ABC's "This Week" - Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.; former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

CBS' "Face the Nation" - Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.

NBC's "Meet the Press" - Former President Clinton; David Axelrod, Obama's chief strategist; Steve Schmidt, senior adviser to McCain; Rep. Mark Udall, D-Colo.; former Rep. Bob Schaffer, R-Colo.

CNN's "Late Edition" - Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari; Reps. Barney Frank, D-Mass., and Eric Cantor, R-Va.

"Fox News Sunday" - Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and John Kerry, D-Mass; Cristian Samper, director of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

"The Chris Matthews Show" - Panel: David Brooks, Andrea Mitchell, Eugene Robinson, Katty Kay. Topics: Who won Friday's debate? Who has the momentum going forward?

So what's catching your eye this morning?
