Sunday shows: Wikileaks aftermath

Leading tomorrow's Sunday shows will be a variety of leaders who will focus on the economy, prospects for the midterm elections, the state of President Obama's agenda, and the war in Afghanistan in light of a major leak of classified reports about its progress.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will appear on ABC's "This Week" on the debut show of new anchor and former CNN international reporter Christiane Amanpour. The two will discuss Democrats' outlook for the midterm elections as they begin August recess, as well as whether the documents released by Wikieaks will sway the course of the war.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates will also appear to discuss Afghanistan and the leaked documents.

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R) will appear on "Fox News Sunday," followed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader John Boehner. Palin will be asked about her political future. All three will weigh in on Republican prospects for the midterm elections, and comment on the notable events of Obama's week: his appearance on "The View," and his stops at high-profile Democratic fundraisers in New York.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen will be seen on both NBC's "Meet the Press" and CBS' "Face the Nation," talking about Wikileaks.

CBS will also feature Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), while NBC will cover the economy with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I), former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell (D).

CNN's "State of the Union" will include Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), who chairs the Armed Services Committee, along with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). Graham said during an appearance on Fox News on Friday that Wikileaks should be prosecuted for "undermining the war effort."
