Previewing The Sunday Shows
President Obama's advisers and the two governors in charge of their parties' political fortunes will face off on the Sunday shows this week.
Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs and Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels will head to "Meet the Press." David Axelrod will share CNN's "State of the Union" with Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell -- the chairmen, respectively, of the Democratic Governors Association and the Republican Governors Association.
Axelrod will also be on "This Week," along with former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman. Former Bush adviser Karl Rove and former White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton are both involved in outside groups known as "super PACs." They'll appear on "Fox News Sunday."
Former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa. will be part of "Fox News Sunday" 2012 candidate series.
Also on Fox, former DNC chairman Terry McAuliffe, former RNC chairman Ed Gillespie, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Moody's Mark Zandi tackle President Obama's new jobs plan.
