The guests on the Sunday political talk shows include Obama campaign chief strategist David Axelrod on NBC’s Meet the press and CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley. A host of lawmakers who work on national security affairs will appear on the shows to discuss the secret service scandal in Colombia and the photos the LA Times ran of U.S. service members posing with dead Taliban fighters. But what stood out to me is the appearance of Keith Olbermann (no affiliation) on the ABC This Week roundtable.
