Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

Five people stand a chance (one of them a very slim chance) of delivering a victory speech in Iowa tomorrow night: Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Bernie Sanders, and Hillary Clinton. Coincidentally, as I write this, there are only five guests booked this morning for the last Sunday shows before the caucus: Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Bernie Sanders, and Hillary Clinton. The one to watch is “Fox News Sunday,” which will have Trump and Cruz. This is Chris Wallace’s chance to unfurl the Trump immigration lowlight reel that Fox didn’t get to show on Thursday night and Trump’s chance to continue accusing Cruz of being some sort of illegal immigrant. Trump will also be on “This Week” and “Face the Nation” while Cruz will appear on “Meet the Press” and “State of the Union.” Rubio will be on “Face the Nation” after Trump and on “State of the Union” after Cruz. One thing to watch for this morning is who Cruz spends his time attacking. A man in a tight race with Trump for first place should, logically, focus on Trump. A man who’s resigned to second place at best and is worried about a late surge from Rubio should focus on Rubio. Hmmmmm.
Sanders and Clinton will both be on “This Week,” in the unlikely event that you’re reading this and you’re more interested in the Democratic race than the Republican one. The full line-up is at the AP.
