Veteran CNN anchor Candy Crowley is leaving, which means State of the Union needs a new anchor.
And, the show goes to…
Jake Tapper… Maybe. There’s a chance he could manage to juggle The Lead (and maybe take off every Friday, or every Monday) and anchor SOTU.
Gloria Borger… Maybe. She anchored SOTU this past month, and over the summer, co-anchored with Dana Bash.
John King… Maybe. When he was given Inside Politics, it was speculated to be a trial for him to replace Candy Crowley. But will CNN go down that road again?
Wolf Blitzer… Wolf’s getting old and boring, BUT he knows politics. Have him cut his hours, leave The Situation Room, and become the SOTU anchor.
The top of the not-so-likely but possible list?
