Tim Geithner, secretary of the treasury, is performing a “Full Ginsburg” this weekend.

That’s the colloquial term for what the point-man in the Obama administration’s fiscal cliff talks will achieve Sunday morning, when he appears on ABC’s “This Week,” CBS’s “Face the Nation,” CNN’s “State of the Union,” FOX ‘s “News Sunday” and NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

The moniker comes from the Monica era: William H. Ginsburg, attorney for former White House intern Monica Lewinsky during the “did not have sex” scandal involving President Bill Clinton, was the first person to accomplish the five broadcast-cable show sweep on Feb. 1, 1998.
