This Sunday, November 2, is the final Sunday before Tuesday’s highly anticipated presidential election. Gov. Sarah Palin has thus far opted not to participate in what has become a campaign ritual: Interviews on the various Sunday talk show programs.

Well, all of the major Sunday talk shows — NBC’s “Meet the Press,” CNN’s “Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer,” Fox’s “Fox News Sunday,” ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” and CBS’s “Face the Nation” — have now announced their weekend lineups and none were able to land an interview with the Alaska governor, just days before the election.

It should be noted: The last vice presidential candidate to avoid NBC’s “Meet the Press” — long a ratings and gravitas champ among its competitors — was…

Dan Quayle.
