Previewing the Sunday Shows
This weekend Meet the Press, Face the Nation, and This Week will host Bill Clinton as he prepares for the 7th annual Clinton Global Initiative meeting. He'll reflect on his presidency, the 2012 presidential race, and possible solutions to spur job growth.
One place Clinton won't be going on this week will be Fox News Sunday where his last interview in 2006 made news as the former president and host Chris Wallace argued for much of it.
On Fox News Sunday, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., will offer his perspective on the job plans offered by President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner. GOP Presidential candidate Herman Cain will participate in Fox News Sunday's sit down series with 2012 candidates.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will be on Meet the Press to analyze the president's jobs plan, and discuss the economy and the 2012 Republican field. Dick Cheney will be on Face the Nation to discuss his book.
Former United Kingdom Prime Minister Tony Blair will talk about the developments in Israel on This Week as the Palestinian Liberation Organization seeks recognition from the United Nations.
