    Vice President Dick Cheney will appear on "Meet the Press," as will Vice President-elect Joe Biden.

    The outgoing and incoming vice presidents make the talk show rounds this Sunday as Joe Biden looks ahead to the next eight years while Dick Cheney looks back.

    Biden, who has been uncharacteristically quiet since Election Day, sits down with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.” Vice President Dick Cheney meanwhile will be on Fox News Sunday where he is anticipated to reflect on the administration’s response the September 11 terrorist attacks and the lead up to war with Iraq.

    Fellow Bush administration official Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will be in studio for only the second outing for recently named “Meet the Press” host David Gregory. The NBC program rounds out its lineup with a roundtable featuring CNBC's Erin Burnett, NBC's Andrea Mitchell, NPR's Michele Norris and Carol Marin of the Chicago Sun-Times.

    Elsewhere the economy and Caroline Kennedy’s potential appointment to Hillary Clinton’s soon-to-be vacant Senate seat will dominate conversation.

    On CNN’s “Late Edition” Republican Rep. Eric Cantor (Va.) and Democratic Rep. Barney Frank (Mass.) will tangle over President Bush’s Friday announced $17.4 billion automaker bailout. They will pass the debate to Laura Tyson, a former economic advisor to President Clinton, and former John McCain advisor and CEO of Hewlett-Packard Carly Fiorina.

    Prominent New York political players headlines CBS’s “Face the Nation” where Kerry Kennedy will have to defend her cousin’s bid against skeptical New York Congressman Gary Ackerman (D), Tom Reynolds (R) and potential 2010 senate GOP rival Rep. Peter King.

    And finally Al Hunt lands New Hampshire Senator John Sununu (R) on Bloomberg’s “Political Capital” to give his take on the bailout.
