As to the morning shows, there are two women on the Sunday shows, plus whatever female analysts Fox
“News” and “This Week” have on their panels. So we may have

I’ll be reading and doing some research this morning. If there’s a good article or post out there don’t
forget “Hot Topics.”
It’s on the right-hand margin and great for important stories, including posts
to your own blog. So don’t be shy. Cujo‘s got a terrific post on the US Attorney purge. Don’t miss it.

On the topic of Iraq, get a load of this.

Enjoy your morning. But some time during it, find time to read this article. John and Elizabeth Edwards are the most extraordinary people.
