Bob Schieffer is stepping down from one of the most prestigious posts in political journalism, CBS's "Face the Nation." He has moderated the program for 24 years. So the people who usually prognosticate about who might be the next president or a future senator are now talking about who might fill his seat.
CBS is not commenting. That's partly because no concrete decision about Schieffer's successor has been made, according to people with direct knowledge of the process.
