Good morning all, as you all know the great Nicole Belle is taking a much needed break from politics so I'm filling in for the Bobblehead thread today and I'll miss her dearly. So here's the Sunday Talk Show lineups. Wait, what? Do I see a progressive voice on one of the shows? Wow, that's a shock. You would think as popular and brilliant as Senator Elizabeth Warren is, she'd be asked to appear more often.
