Sunday Morning Talk Show Lineup

The morning talk shows today will be focusing on health care with the Obama Administration sending out David Axelrod. It shouldn't be too surprising that they are sending out a senior administration official today because they've been trying to convince people on both sides of the aisle that the Senate bill is indeed going to make the reforms necessary in a cost effective manner. All of his appearances will be important since the left has been really upset with how the leadership seems willing to cave into any demand made by Joe Lieberman, but I think most people will be turning their attention to Meet the Press where Axelrod and Howard Dean will be both making appearances. Since the White House has been trashing Dean behind his back through anonymous quotes to the media and in conversations with staffers on the Hill, it will be interesting to see how direct Axelrod will actually be when Dean has a chance to directly respond to the criticisms.

With that being said, here is the lineup for the Sunday morning talk shows today.

Meet the Press: David Axelrod and Howard Dean will be on to talk about the difference of opinions within the Democratic Party in regards to the Senate bill. Also of note to the blogosphere is that Kos will be part of the roundtable portion of the show.

Face the Nation: Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Olympia Snowe (R-ME), Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

This Week with George Stephanopoulos: David Axelrod, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Il), Jon Kyl (R -Ariz)

Fox News Sunday: Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn).

State of the Union: David Axelord, Sen. Lindsey Grahm (R-SC), Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I-NYC), Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R- California, and Andy Stern (President of SEIU).
