Sunday Talk Shows Open Thread

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

No surprise, but it's an Obama-a-thon on the shows this weekend. As it should be.

Obama is on CNN and a slew of his advisers (Axelrod, Summers, Emanuel, Gibbs) are also getting some face time. The Speaker will make an appearance on FOX. For some reason, CNN also thinks it's necessary to foist Bush staffers upon us. Haven't those people done enough damage? Can't they just go away? Knowing they are just about to be former Bush staffers is the only consolation.

This is one of the few times when Democrats actually outnumber Republicans on the Sunday shows.

Anyway, here's the lineup:

ABC's "This Week" — David Axelrod, senior adviser to President-elect Barack Obama.


CBS' "Face the Nation" — Lawrence Summers, Obama's choice for director of the National Economic Council.


NBC's "Meet the Press" — Rahm Emanuel, Obama's choice for chief of staff.


CNN's "State of the Union" — President-elect Barack Obama; Axelrod; Dana Perino, press secretary to President George W. Bush; Bush White House counselor Ed Gillespie.

"Fox News Sunday" _ House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.; Robert Gibbs, Obama's choice for press secretary.
