'Face The Nation' Host Bob Schieffer : "We Try Every Week To Book Mitt Romney"

WASHINGTON -- "Face the Nation" host Bob Schieffer sat down with two Republican presidential candidates last Sunday, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, and he has interviewed Rick Santorum a few times during the primary race.

But he's still waiting for Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney.

"We try every week," Schieffer told The Huffington Post Monday night, during a party rolling out a new partnership between CBS and Google to hold video chat "hangouts" on Google+. "I call at least two or three times a week, and they keep saying maybe, maybe, maybe next week. But they never do."

So far this cycle, the former Massachusetts governor has bucked tradition by skipping all the Sunday morning public affairs shows except "Fox News Sunday." While he has appeared several times recently on Fox News, the campaign has generally limited Romney's national media appearances more than it did during the 2008 race.

Although Romney didn't stop by last Sunday -- which happened to be Schieffer's first hour-long episode -- a younger version of the candidate did appear on the program. Schieffer played a clip of an interview he did with Romney during the 1994 Senate race against the the late Ted Kennedy.
