As I'm sure y'all know by now, Bush will be on Meet the Press this Sunday. Here's my prediction for what will transpire:
Russert has a perception of credibility with the American public. He will take efforts to maintain that.
Unfortunately, the efforts will be directed towards creating a perception that he was hard on Bush. He'll do that by having tough looks on his face, using a slightly non-deferential tone of voice sometimes, and asking a few questions that do not have answers that are obvious on their face.
In the end, Bush will come out looking like he survived a tough interview, and Russert will come out looking like he delivered one. Win win for both parties. Of course we all know that nothing of substance will have really happened, so it's lose lose for the citizens yet again.
