I wonder if Russert will ask Schumer about Lieberman. That could be very interesting.

Face the Nation doesn't have their schedule up yet so that one will be a surprise. By far the best one will be seeing Markos on Russert tomorrow morning. Is he catching a flight from Vegas to DC tonight or is he leaving his party early?
I got to say this is big. I said in my Sunday Line Up post that "This Week" looked promising and indeed it was:
In an exclusive interview on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold called on the Senate to publicly admonish President Bush for approving domestic wiretaps on American citizens without first seeking a legally required court order.
"This conduct is right in the strike zone of the concept of high crimes and misdemeanors," said Feingold, D-Wis., a three-term senator and potential presidential contender.
He said President Bush had, "openly and almost thumbing his nose at the American people," continued the NSA domestic wiretap program.
This is the boldest step anyone has done in this Senate to try and write the wrongs of Bush. John Conyers introduced motions of censure last December but the Republican stronghold is to great on the House to get it to move anywhere. This could be the start of something big. You can view the interview at Crooks and Liars, and view the entire transcript at Raw Story. Just to mention, Frist followed up with trying to play the terrorism card again. True Frist is one of the very few who also supported Dubai taking over our ports.
Now this is truly a scandal amongst scandals. The Fox News Network, who
proudly claims to be fair and balanced, has now proven that their number one
host, none other than Bill O'Reilly, will take interviews, edit them, then steal
the ideas that person gives in the interview to make their own.
I became aware of this story from the Al Franken show on
Sundance. Joe Biden had given an interview to George Stephanopoulos on ABC's
This Week with George Stephanopoulos. In this interview, Senator Biden was
addressing the problems at the Guantanamo Bay detention center and has
introduced legislation to appoint an independent committee to investigate the
abuse allegations. When asked about his opinion on the matter, Senator Biden
said that it should go through the committee but he feels it should be shut
Now good old
Bill O'Reilly and his bosses at the Faux News Network got a hold of this and
made some nice edits to it. Watching Bill it appears that Senator Biden is
calling for the base to be shut down. Then Bill gives his suggestion to the
President of appointing a independent committee to investigate the allegations
(blatantly stealing Senator Biden's idea).
This is not only a scandal, and further proof that the right-wing media will
spin anything to hurt the views of the left, but it is also ethically and
morally wrong. On top of that it is truly hurting a nation that is already
severely divided on political issues. Fox News by allowing this has further
widened the gaps between the red and blue states (something President Bush
promised to heal at his acceptance speech in November).
