Themes and Guest Lists for the Sunday Morning Talk Shows Today

There appears to be three major themes emerging for today's Sunday morning talk shows.

1) Hillary Clinton will be making the rounds in order to discuss foreign affairs policy. While she'll be speaking a lot about the situation in Afghanistan, she also will likely touch on the trip to Asia that President Obama is currently on.

2) Rudy Guliani is making the rounds to talk about the decision to prosecute Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a federal court. He's already come out against the decision and has been using the decision as an attempt to remind voters of his national security credentials (something that backfired on him during his presidential campaign when every sentence he said seemed to simply consist of a noun, a verb, and 9/11).

3) With the health care bill expected to come to the floor of the Senate relatively soon, there will be several people making appearances to discuss the current state of health care reform.

Here's the guest list for the various shows:

Meet the Press: Scretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, and Rev. Al Sharpton

This Week with George Stephanopoulos: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Mayor Rudy Guliani

State of the Union: Senior White House Adviser David Axelrod, Senator Kent Conrad (D-North Dakota) and Senator Judd Gregg (R-New Hampshire), former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and Governor Brian Schweitzer (D-Montana)

Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace:
Rudy Giuliani and Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky), and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease Dr. Anthony Fauci.
