On David Gregory's New Show ...

So I'm watching the start of the new David Gregory show on MSNBC.  Again, I'm sorry to see Tucker go.  But I do like how Gregory says he will start every show by having each of his panelists give their top headline of the day. 

Speaking of which, Chuck Todd's headline was breaking news that Florida will not have a second primary.  I'm sure we will be hearing more about that.

During the first break, Gregory puts up a way for viewers to email or call the show with questions for the panelists.  It seems this show will be panelist-driven.  I wonder if it will always be the same folks -- sort of like a modern-day McLaughlin Group -- or if they will change from day to day ...

My hope is that Chuck Todd is a staple of the show.  But I would like to see him mix it up from time to time.  The same crew once a week is good.  But every day? 

So far, Gregory hasn't displayed any sort of liberal bias.  The show seems pretty down-the-middle -- with him playing the host and the guests giving their opinions -- which is good...
