Immigration and '08 Longshots
The Memorial Day weekend installments of the Sunday political shows are turning down (or up?) the volume ahead of a congressional recess with talk about immigration and a host of longshot (and a few really longshot) 2008 presidential candidates.
NBC's "Meet the Press" gives New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D) his due as the sole guest. Richardson announced early this week (for the third time) that he is running for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Meanwhile, long shot candidate Jim Gilmore (R), the former governor of Virginia, will appear on ABC's "This Week." Also on the show will be Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez for a discussion of immigration legislation.
CBS's "Face the Nation" has Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-Al.) and Carl Levin (D-Mich.). And CNN's "Late Edition" has two 2008 candidates -- Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) and Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) -- as well as Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.
Check this space on Sunday afternoon for highlights from the shows.
