Sundays bring us the political talk shows. If you see something interesting on one of them, jump on the comment board and talk about it. This week, coinciding with the National Governors Association‘s annual winter meeting, everyone’s got a governor (though three shows have to share the same one). Governors have been in the news this week, anyway, so it works out just fine. According to Politico, here is the lineup for this week’s shows:
Meet the Press (NBC) — Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is staying home instead of going to the conference, so he’s being interviewed via satellite from the state Capitol. It shouldn’t be hard to figure out what he’s going to be talking about. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) will also be a guest, and is expected to talk about Libya and the way Obama is handling the situation. The political roundtable includes Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.
State of the Union (CNN) — McCain pops in here, too, along with his 2008 endorser, Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT), chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs. And since this week wouldn’t be complete without at least one Governor, Rick Scott, the Florida Republican, and Dan Malloy, the Connecticut Democrat, will be talking about state fiscal policy.
Newsmakers (CSPAN) — Governor Scott shows up here, too.
Political Capital (Bloomberg TV) — Great Scott! Yes, Rick is on three talk shows this week. He wouldn’t be secretly running for President, would he? Naaaaaah…
