According to multiple network sources, MSNBC is developing a weekend political show to be moderated by Chuck Todd.
Todd is the network’s GOP shill political director and chief White House correspondent.
After Tim Russert’s untimely death last year, the network briefly considered Todd to take over the moderating duties on Meet the Press but he lost out to Karl Rove’s peripatetic dancing partner, David Gregory.
Chuck Todd made a name for himself in the midst of the 2008 Democratic primary when he called the primary for Barack Obama in April, saying Hillary Clinton would have to win 69% to 70% of the delegates in every remaining state race in order to catch Obama, basically impossible.
