Sunday Show Guests

All sorts of topics to talk about this week on the political gab-shows. Here's what the lineup looks like:

This Week (ABC): US Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad will discuss today's constitutional referendum. Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) will be on to discuss Iraq and other defense-related issues (he's on the Senate Armed Services Committee). Ex-prosecutors Richard Ben-Veniste and Joseph DiGenova will discuss the Plame-name leak investigation, and there will be a roundtable.

Face the Nation (CBS): Senators Joe Biden and Chuck Hagel from the Foreign Relations Committee will be chat about the Iraq referendum. Then reporters will talk amongst themselves: Doyle McManus of the LATimes, Jan Crawford Greenberg of the ChiTrib and CBS' own Lara Logan will appear.

Meet the Press (NBC): Russert gets the big fish of the weekend, Secretary of State Condi Rice. She'll be on to talk Iraq, as will Senator Carl Levin (D-MI, the ranking Dem on the Armed Services panel). Former FBI Director Louis Freeh will also be on; he's hawking a new book.

Fox News Sunday: Rice will appear here too, along with Democratic Senate Whip Dick Durbin. The usuals will have a panel discussion.

Late Edition (CNN): Khalilzad reappears here, to be joined by Senate Armed Services Committee chairman John Warner and the Iraqi Foreign Minister, Hosyar Zebari. Dr. Irwin Redlener will be on to discuss bird flu (he is from the Columbia University National Center for Disaster Preparedness).
