Previewing the Sunday Shows
"Meet the Press" will be live in Chicago on Sunday with exclusive live interviews with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis. In light of the debate over the American Jobs Act, Emanuel will address the local economy, as well as his transition into office and his former boss' reelection effort, while Ryan will discuss the economy and jobs at the national level.
Meanwhile, former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain continues his book tour, making appearances on both "Face the Nation" and "State of the Union." With stops on "This Week" and "Fox News Sunday" last week following his surge in the Florida straw poll, Cain only needs a quick spot with NBC's David Gregory to round out the top five.
As the Republican presidential field begins to tighten, former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., and Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., will be guests on "Fox News Sunday" and "State of the Union," respectively, hoping to inject some excitement back into their flagging campaigns.
