Here's what's coming up for the major network morning news shows today. In chronological order - broadcast channel-wise, in D.C. - that means 4, 5, 7 and 9. That would be NBC, FOX, ABC and CBS. Check channels and air times for a station near you...
On NBC, White House senior adviser David Axelrod is set to discuss President Obama's agenda. From the other side of the aisle will be the Republicans - former Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts and Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.
Meanwhile on Fox, we have Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky talking about the state of health care, and reform, in this country. Also, Army Gen. Ray Odierno, the top U.S. commander is Iraq, is set to give his take on the current status of American forces preparing to withdraw from major Iraqi cities.
On ABC, Mr. Axelrod (D.C. really is a small town...) will also make an appearance, talking up health care reform with Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, ranking Republican of the Senate Finance Committee. Seems to be a hot topic of conversation for the Obama administration this week. Watch for it.
Finally, there's CBS, with Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour giving his first interview since taking over as chairman of the Republican Governor's Association. That nasty incident with Mark Sanford - who is either the current, outgoing or former governor of South Carolina, depending on whom you ask - seems to be out of the picture, again. Also, our U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, will give her take on what's going on in Iran, Iraq, North Korea and Afghanistan. Seems she's got about 5 minutes to say "Ack~!"
