Sunday Talk Shows Open Thread

Well, who knows what news will be made today. Joe Biden is on Meet the Press. He could say anything.

Besides, Biden, quite an array of guests who will probably talking a lot about health care. It’s getting to crunch time and, as expected, lots of Democrats are aiding and abetting the insurance industry’s lobbying effort to destroy real reform. We could get some clues about that this morning.

Here’s the lineup:

ABC’s “This Week” — Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius; former Gov. Mitt Romney, R-Mass.


CBS’ “Face the Nation” — Sens. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Dick Durbin, D-Ill.


NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Vice President Joe Biden.


CNN’s “State of the Union” — Sebelius; Sens. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., Kent Conrad, D-N.D., and Susan Collins, R-Maine; Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind.

“Fox News Sunday” _ Sens. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., and Charles Grassley, R-Iowa; Thomas Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
