On the political talk shows this morning there appears to be three big themes that are emerging. Perhaps the topic that’s most on the mind of so many Americans – the economy. Since it’s been one year since the stimulus bill was signed by Obama, one of the big topics will be whether or not the stimulus bill is working.
With the National Governor’s Association meeting, there are also several governors who will be appearing on the Sunday talk shows this morning. The theme of discussion with them appears to be the partisan gridlock that is currently taking place in Washington.
Finally, as Hillary Clinton is now returning home after a trip to the Middle East and a lot of national security issues arising recently, another topic that will be discussed is national security and foreign policy.
With that in mind, here is the lineup of guests that will be making the rounds this morning.
Meet the Press: General David Petraues (Commander, US Central Command), Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-MN), Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN, Chairman, House Republican Conference), Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD, chairman of DCCC)
