STILL HIDING…. The Politico’s Michael Calderone offers a look at the lineups for the Sunday-morning talk shows:

Joe Biden will be making his first appearance on “Meet the Press” this Sunday since joining the Democratic ticket, an NBC spokesperson just confirmed.

As mentioned earlier, Obama will be on “This Week” and McCain on “Face the Nation.”

So when’s Palin’s turn?

Why, what a good question. When is Palin’s turn?

Prior to last night, McCain campaign handlers could, with varying degrees of credibility, argue that Palin couldn’t sit down for media interviews because she was prepping for last night’s speech. That’s not exactly compelling, but that was their story and they were sticking to it.

But they’re going to need new excuses to keep Palin hidden from questions. It’s not a sustainable approach.
