‘ED Show’ playbook: Wed., May 9


President Barack Obama makes history by standing up for same-sex marriage, but Mitt Romney is sticking with inequality.

Ed is putting together extended coverage of today’s historic statement by the president for tonight’s show.  First, he’ll welcome marriage equality activists singer/songwriter/actress Cyndi Lauper, co-founder of the True Colors Fund, and John Lewis, Legal Director for Marriage Equality USA.

Then, David Corn, DC Bureau Chief for Mother Jones magazine and columnist for PoliticsDaily.com, and Democratic Strategist Bob Shrum, will look at how the decision went down behind the scenes and what it all means politically for the president and Mitt Romney.

The countdown to the Wisconsin recall election begins and Tom Barrett is wasting no time taking on Scott Walker.  Ed will ask state Sen. Lena Taylor (D-WI) if Democrats are truly unified after yesterday’s primary.

Republican budget cuts in Pennsylvania are decimating public schools.  Tonight, Pennsylvania teacher Charles Hample takes and a stand and joins Ed.

Michelle Bachmann obtains dual citizenship with a European socialist country.  You won’t want to miss Ed’s “expose” on that.

And in the Big Finish, Mitt Romney says the Republican Party is pro-woman, but we’re not letting him get away with it.  Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood refutes Romney’s claim.

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