Previewing the Sunday Shows
Vice President Biden will take time off from touring the country promoting President Obama's jobs plan to appear on "State of the Union" this Sunday, where he will continue talking about the jobs plan. Biden has come under fire in recent days for comments he made, claiming that if the jobs bill is not passed, rape and murder rates will skyrocket.
Biden will be followed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who will talk about his own party's jobs plan and respond to Biden's comments. McConnell's promise that his number one focus in this Congress would be making Obama a one-term president was a major Democratic talking point on TV this week in the lead-up to last night's vote on the jobs bill.
Many of the Sunday shows are focusing on this week's major international news, with the death of Libyan Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi and Obama's announcement that he will withdraw all of the troops from Iraq by the end of the year. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was in Islamabad, Pakistan, Friday, following a surprise trip to Libya earlier this week, was a late addition on "Fox News Sunday," "Meet The Press" and "This Week." Meanwhile, CNN's Fareed Zakaria scored an exclusive interview with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that will air live, in part, Friday at 10:30 p.m. on CNN International and in full on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" on Sunday.
And for the first time in three weeks, businessman Herman Cain will not be featured on any of the Sunday shows. However, his interview prior to the CNN Western Republican Leadership Conference Debate with CNN's Wolf Blitzer will be re-aired on "The Situation Room."
