‘Ed Show’ playbook: Wed., Mar. 14, 2012


Newt Gingrich vows to continue on all the way to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, ignoring calls for him to quit after getting hammered by voters on his own turf.  Will he he block Rick Santorum’s call for a two-man race with Mitt Romney?

Democratic strategist Bob Shrum, and Howard Dean, former Democratic National Committee Chairman, former presidential candidate and the founder of Democracy for America, join Ed with analysis and reaction.

Mitt Romney sticks his foot in his mouth and re-opens the contraception fight and a bill in Arizona would let bosses can fire women for taking birth control.   Katrina Vanden Heuvel, Editor and Publisher of The Nation, will have reaction.

Republicans in Congress have helped to tank the economy and we have the charts to prove it.  Ed will welcome reaction from Robert Reich, former U.S. Labor Secretary, UC Berkeley Professor.

It’s game on in Wisconsin as recall dates are set for (the apparently underpaid) Gov. Scott Walker and five other union-busting radical Republicans.    John Nichols, Washington Correspondent of The Nation, and Mike Tate, Chair of The Democratic Party of Wisconsin, have the latest.

Sarah Palin challenges President Obama to a debate in response to this Obama campaign ad:

And in the Big Finish, another The Ed Show EXCLUSIVE.  Harvard Professor Charles Ogletree, the man at the center of Sean Hannity’s bogus conspiracy theory, will tell us why he “hid” that tape of barack Obama hugging Harvard Professor Derrick Bell (whose widow sat down with Ed on Monday).

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