'Ed Show' tonight: Wed., Dec. 28, 2011

With the first vote in the GOP presidential nomination process just six days away, we have a special show on tap for you tonight at 8pET.

Ed stopped by a Ron Paul event today in Newton, Iowa, where the caucuses are set for next Tuesday.  He talked with Ron Paul’s campaign chairman Drew Ivers, Roger Simonthe Chief Political Columnist of Politico, and Paul supporters, including Jeremy Spice (pictured).  

Ed’ll have a full report on how the Iowa caucuses look from the ground, including a significant surge by Rick Santorum.

Also, a new radio ad calls for Iowans to go rogue and caucus for Sarah Palin.  Democratic strategist Bob Shrum handicaps Iowa and beyond.

And another Rick Perry gaffe in the making.  Does he not know that Canada is a sovereign country?

Mitt Romney is touting the individual mandate as a conservative principle, but still wants to repeal “Obamacare.”  Tonight, we’ll explore the Republican hypocrisy with Wendell Potter, Senior Analyst at the Center for Public Integrity, and Ari Melber, a correspondent for the Nation magazine.  

OK, so Romney is running for president as an expert on business.  But someone from his past has come forward to say Romney is a job killer.  Randy Johnson of the United Steel Workers joins us to talk about his personal experience.

And Republicans claim the Obama administration is playing politics with voter rights by throwing out a voter ID law in South Carolina. The ACLU’s Kate O’Conner and Professor at Occidental College Caroline Heldman will talk about further action to prevent voter suppression.

It’s going to be another great @EdShow at 8pET on @msnbcTV.

And join the conversation now or during the show by commenting on Facebook and/or tweeting (with the #edshow hashtag) so we can share your thoughts on the show!
