Menino on CNN's 'State of the Union' Sunday

Mayor Thomas Menino joins a largely Massachusetts-centric crew on CNN's "State of Union" show this Sunday, with talk of the late U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy's life and legacy on the agenda.

He won't be the only one on with Boston ties: Thomas P. O'Neill III, the former lieutenant governor, PR chief at O'Neill and Associates and son of the late U.S. House speaker; Supreme Court Justie Stephen Breyer, a former Kennedy aide; environmental advocate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Sen. Kennedy's nephew; and Red Sox president Larry Lucchino.

U.S. Sens. Chris Dodd (D-R.I.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) also appear. The show will Hatch's third stop that morning, and Dodd's second.

For those who don't know, "State of the Union" is hosted by John King, a Dorchester native who often likes to mention that as a boy he delivered the Boston Herald.
