That's right, David Gregory is dancing his way into his first official hosting duties on Meet the Press. And he has a full house with which to contend: Illinois politicos to discuss the ongoing Blago saga and past and present CEOs, undoubtedly to discuss their take on the union busting auto bailout. Hmmm....let's see how much Republican spin Gregory will allow without context, like his predecessor Brokaw. I'm guessing, especially considering the conservative-weighted line up, that a guy willing to be part of Karl Rove's dance posse is willing to put up with quite a bit of conservative crap.

Former Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain will be on This Week. What are the chances that George Stephanopoulos will question him about the report he co-authored fixing the blame for our torture policies squarely on Donald Rumsfeld and George Bush? Or will he be asked for his sage economic advice? You know, the stuff that Joe the Plumber found appalling?
