The inside scoop on Sunday show guests.

TVWeek recently interviewed producers, bookers, and moderators of the Sunday morning news talk shows and found out what they really think of their political guests. Some highlights:

THE HARDEST TO GETLeading vote-getter: Vice President Dick Cheney. “He doesn’t give a s***. He’s checked out,” said one respondent. “I don’t know what he does all day,” said another.

DOESN’T MAKE THE NEWS THEY PROBABLY SHOULDLeading vote-getter: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice “never says anything.” “Everybody got really tired of the spin.”

A veteran newsmaker also commented that Rice is lying so low, “She’s under the rug in the living room.” Among the presidential candidates, Sens. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Barack Obama (D-IL) are considered the “biggest gets,” and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is reportedly “great in a green room.” (HT: Jossip)
