For Sunday, June 29, 2008


FOX News Sunday (FNS): Host Chris Wallace talks to Ed Rendell for Obama and Rob Portman for McCain. Then it's a trip to the fringe with Libertarian Presidential nominee Bob Barr.

This Week (ABC): Host George Stephanopoulos talks to Rahm Emanuel for Obama and Tim Pawlenty for McCain.

Meet the Press (NBC): Host Tom Brokaw sits down with California Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wyoming Dem Gov. Dave Freudenthal (D-WY), and Governor Bill Ritter (D-Colorado) to discuss the politics of the wild, wild west.

Face the Nation (CBS): Host Bob Schieffer speaks with Joe Lieberman for McCain and Wes Clark for Obama.

Late Edition (CNN): Host Wolf Blitzer talks to Bobby Jindal for McCain and Jon Corzine for Obama, then to Mitch McConnell and the usual cast of thousands.


There are potential veeps, I have heard, it Rendell (D), Portman (R), and Pawlenty (R). Jindal's name has been thrown around, and I'm surprised I've not yet heard Emanuel's name.

This week is also of note for the fact that the two "mob governors," Rendell and Corzine, will be on in the morning, though on different shows.

I'll do the review tomorrow.

The reason Emanuel's name isn't discussed as VP is that he will be appointed to Obama's seat in the Senate if Obama wins.

It might be worth watching FTN just to see Leiberman use Clark like wash rag to clean the bugs off his bumper.

"If they were merely incompetent, then at least SOME of their actions would have been to the benefit of the country."

And I registered a DUH moment, as an Obama/Emanuel ticket would not be Constitutional, as they are both citizens of hte same State. You can't move one of them to, say, Arkansas, as they both sit in Congress and have citizenship requirements.


And a Senator Rahm might be a small toss to the Clintons.

I never knew that people who want to limit government control and maximize individual liberty were on the fringe. By that definition Ronald Reagan was on the fringe. I'm proud to be a part of that fringe.
