The Teaser for Monday, November 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.

6:40AM Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst with The NPD Group and author of "Buy Me!" , on his latest survey results of Black Friday sales. Sure, people went to the stores in droves, but did they actually buy anything?

7:40AM Stephanie Napier, former neighbor of Mohamed Osman Mahamud , the Portland, OR teenager who was arrested in connection with planning to bomb a tree-lighting ceremony. We’ll ask her about her recollections of Mahamud and his family, and whether she was surprised when she heard of the arrest.

8:10AM James Rubin, former U.S. assistant Secretary of State and adjunct professor at Columbia University, on North Korea’s reaction to South Korea and U.S. joint military exercises on Sunday. Can regional talks prevent the situation from intensifying? Plus we’ll ask if the Wikileaks document release will have any impact on U.S. diplomacy around the world.

8:40AM Vera Gibbons, financial journalist and contributor with Turbo Tax, on what you can do now to lower your 2010 tax bill.

    Another civil war in Korea?... NO .. it's the same war that started in 1950 and was never finished.

    I love watching you guys in the morning. I have no idea what John and Kiran have to do to look so fresh and perky. One bone though. When you guys show Kiran I can't see her shoes anymore. They are covered by footer graphics. We don't get too much high fashion here in the Cayman Islands and I'd like the get the whole picture. Sorry John...You're shoes aren't as important. 🙂

    I am shocked, shocked to find spying going on in diplomatic embassies, and that people say in private things they don't say in public. Just shocked.. Captain Renault, Casablanca

    My question is for James Rubin. Is this the right time for both President Obama and President Of China Ma Ying-jeau to come together and show North Korea both the U.S. and China demand that N. Korea hold peaceful talks with S. Korea in order to disolve all fears of another civil war?
