The Teaser for Friday, October 29, 2010

"The Teaser” is a preview of the guests we have lined up for the next day – so you know when to tune in (and when to set your alarm!). Guests and times are always subject to change.

6:10AM Rep Kendrick Meek, (D) Florida, Running for U.S. Senate in Florida, on his conversations with President Bill Clinton. Was he asked to drop out of the Florida Senate Race? What really happened?

6:40AM Donna Perdue and Tony Comegys, attending the “Rally to Restore Sanity”, on why they are attending the rally put together by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in Washington this weekend. Is this about politics or entertainment for them?

7:24AM Lakshman Achuthan, Economic Analyst and Managing Dir., Economic Cycle Research Institute and Christine Romans, CNN Business Correspondent, on the state of the economy and whether the U.S. is headed for a double dip recession.

7:40AM Chris Smith, Contributing Editor, New York Magazine, on Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's "Rally to Restore Sanity". Is this a serious political event or just a stunt?

8:10AM Donna Brazile, CNN Political Contributor and Democratic Strategist and Toby Harnden, US Editor, The Daily Telegraph of London, on President Bill Clinton’s influence on the midterm elections. Plus, reaction to the conversations between Clinton and Rep. Kendrick Meek regarding the Florida Senate race.

8:40AM Corby Kummer, Food Writer, The Atlantic  and Self-proclaimed “Candyoholic”, on that sweet, sugary stuff we call candy. Is it really so bad for us or just misunderstood?

    Unfortunately for Florida and the US, Meek followed the natural political theology. "All things are about ME". What would be best for the American people, does not enter into the equation.

    I Want To Say How Much I Support Kendrick Meek For The US Senate In Florida And Im So Proud Of The Fight He Has Made This Far With The Campaign But What President Clinton Said Isn't Wrong I Mean Kendrick Meek Is Very Far Down In The Polls And I Think The Best Man For The Job In The US Senate Seat For Florida Should Be Charlie Crist!
