    Could the Sunday Morning Show suck any worse? And just 2 days before the California election with people hoping to hear informative and insightful discussion before casting votes, all we got was an Italian reporter who could barely speak English and some Hillary Democrat in DC, Philip seeming to just be running out the clock on the 2 hours so he could get back to his real life. There really needs to be some changes in the Sunday Morning talkies, esp. now that the Saturday Morning Talkies are gone altogether.
