April 15 Preview: Cheney on "Face the Nation"
CBS's "Face the Nation" has the catch of the week -- Vice President Dick Cheney, who will sit down for a half hour with host Bob Schieffer. There will be much to talk about: The Iraq war, the recent Iranian hostage episode, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Syria, the Iraq war, the congressional probe into the firings of eight U.S. attorneys and questions about the White House's use of private e-mail addresses for official business.
Immediately after the interview was announced, the Democratic National Committee sent out a list of questions it would like to see Schieffer ask. Here's a sampling:
* In light of the bombing of the Iraqi parliament inside the green zone, do you still believe things are going "remarkably well" in Iraq?
* When will we leave Iraq?
* A new poll says a majority of Americans think the Attorney General should be fired. Do you think Attorney General Gonzales should be fired?
* How far into the Bush White House does this scandal go and has anyone on your staff been involved?
On the other Sunday political talk shows, the focus will be on two topics that have held Washington's attention for the past few weeks -- the firings of the U.S. attorneys and debate over a supplemental spending bill for Iraq and Afghanistan that contains a timetable for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq. House and Senate negotiators will meet to discuss the legislation next week before sending a final bill to President Bush, but he has vowed to veto it.
Fox News Sunday will play host to Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a Judiciary Committee member, and Carl Levin (D-Mich.), chairman of the Armed Services committee. It will also have the Rev. Al Sharpton, who sparred with Don Imus last week for his disparaging comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team.
NBC's "Meet the Press" has retired Gen. Anthony Zinni.
