Here's what's coming up for the major network morning news shows today. In chronological order - broadcast channel-wise, in D.C. - that means 4, 5, 7 and 9. That would be NBC, FOX, ABC and CBS. Check channels and air times for a station near you.

Oh, and since NBC is taking the day off to cover the men's tennis finals at Wimbledon, I've included CNN. Not to mention I'm probably going to be watching boyz hitting balls. But I digress...

Starting with Fox (numerical order, people~!...) Admiral Mike Mullen (chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) makes an appearance, one of several on the airwaves today. The guy gets around...

Also, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and House Minority Leader John Boehner tip off. You thought you saw fireworks on July 4th? This should be interesting.

Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden hits the ABC airwaves to talk about Iraq.

On CBS, Admiral Mullen (apparently able to clone himself) will be joined by Republican Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa and Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer of New York.

And pinch hitting for NBC (tennis, anyone?), former Secretary of State Colin Powell and Queen Noor of Jordan will be on CNN. Talking about What?

I vote for watching the boys at Wimbledon smacking a ball around, but I wouldn't count out the fight on Fox...
