With George Stephanopoulos taking a well-deserved vacation, I’ll be filling in this Sunday with an end-of-the-year show that looks forward toward 2009.
Our guests will be Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, who will talk about the pending Congress, the economic crisis facing this country, and the Obama transition. Both men are strong, new, interesting voices in the Senate, and I’m very much looking forward to the conversation.*
Another guest: incoming White House press secretary Robert Gibbs. For this segment, we solicited some advice from Bush White House press secretaries Dana Perino and Scott McClellan, and former Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart. We chatted with Gibbs about some current questions, his regrets from 2008, how he sees his new job, and the advice from his predecessors.
The roundtable is a great one: Kurt Andersen of PRI’s "Studio 360," Slate’s John Dickerson, National Public Radio’s Alison Stewart, and CBN’s David Brody. We’ll talk about the news and what we see coming down the pike for 2009.
Hope you’ll join us!
* Previous guests had to be rescheduled because one of them had a sudden family commitment and another had the flu.
