‘ED Show’ playbook: Thu., Sep. 27


The presidential election is officially underway.  27 states allow early voting, including two that started today.  And early signs show Mitt Romney is in big trouble.

Tonight, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, (D-FL) Chair of the Democratic National Committee, talks about the Democratic effort to get out the vote in Iowa and beyond.

Then, Romney reveals the real goals of Bain capital in a newly discovered video.  

Ed will ask Robert Reich, former U.S. Labor Secretary and UC Berkeley Professor, what Romney means when he says he’s harvesting companies.

Mitt Romney says he will use the debate to fact check the president’s ad claims.  We’ll have a Romney fact check of our own with Steve Benen, Contributing Writer and Blogger with the Washington Monthly.

The guy who has no idea what he’s talking about when it comes to women has the nerve to call U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill unlady-like.  We’ll bring you the latest on the Todd “legitimate rape” Akin disaster with Keli Goff, author of “The GQ Candidate” and Political Correspondent for TheRoot.com, and Sam Stein, Huffington Post Political Editor.

We’ll also have new details about Romney’s past investments in China.

And in the Big Finish, George W. Bush is staying away from the campaign trail, but his trip to the Cayman Islands could be a headache for Mitt Romney. Jonathan Alter, msnbc Political Analyst and Bloomberg View Columnist, weighs in. 

It’s going to another blockbuster @EdShow at 8pET on @msnbctv.
