A quote from last week’s Sunday OT:
For the Democrats it’ll be the Axelrod and Plouffe Show, now in its 200th week or so. Reason 8,357 to hope Romney wins: If he does, we almost certainly won’t see either of them next Sunday.
You know how that worked out. Headlining “Face the Nation” this morning: The Axelrod victory lap. Expect to hear lots today, and not just from him, about how Obama’s ground game and ingenious microtargeting strategies kept a D+7 electorate at the zenith of Hopenchange in 2008 more or less intact after four years of Obamanomic dreck. There’ll be plenty of chatter too about the GOP’s demographic problem, so naturally Lindsey Graham and Jon Huntsman will appear and reiterate their fervent belief that it’s time to Tory-ize.
Here’s the line-up via National Journal. A glaring omission: Nate Silver. Surely there’s some Sunday host out there who’d benefit from having him patiently explain, once again, that if state polls are accurate in the aggregate, a statistical model that’s based on state polls will also be accurate.
Meet the Press hosts Sen. Charles Schumer, D-NY., Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., and Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas,.
Face the Nation Obama senior adviser David Axelrod and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
This Week hosts Sens. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., and Patty Murray, D-Wash.
Fox News Sunday hosts Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., and Sen. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.
State of the Union hosts California Gov. Jerry Brown, former Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, former Republican Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman and Campaign for Working Families president Gary Bauer.
