ABC and NBC are staging a rematch this morning of the memorable contest between Katie Couric and Sarah Palin in 2008. Couric's interview with Palin in 2008 stalled the meteoric momentum for the vice presidential candidate and fueled the comedy writers at Saturday Night live for months. Now the two battle for top ratings between the Today Show and Good Morning America.
