SOTU Crib Sheet February 26th

Today on State of the Union we spoke exclusively with U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan, Ryan Crocker. He says the U.S. should resist the urge to pull troops out of Afghanistan ahead of schedule due to the violence against Americans over the burning of Qurans at Bagram Airfield.

On the 2012 presidential race, senior adviser to President Obama's re-election campaign Robert Gibbs told us that Rick Santorum has a "legitimate chance" to become the Republican nominee, describing him as a candidate with blue-collar appeal who offers something "different" than the other GOP frontrunner. Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham said they expect Mitt Romney to win the the upcoming Michigan and Arizona primaries. While Graham hasn't endorsed a candidate, he praised Romney for "getting better and better" throughout the campaign season.

Former Shell Oil CEO John Hofmeister warned that Americans are likely to pay the highest average price for gasoline in history this year.

This Sunday...

Update: U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker will be live from Kabul to discuss the ongoing unrest in Afghanistan.

Obama Campaign Senior Adviser Robert Gibbs joins Candy in studio. Which GOP presidential candidate is viewed by the Obama campaign as the biggest threat, and did President Obama successfully make his case on combating rising gas prices? We’ll ask him about that and more.

Then we welcome two leading Republicans: Senators John McCain (R-Arizona) and Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina). Fresh off a trip to Egypt, Libya, and Israel, they give their take on tensions overseas as well as a look at the 2012 GOP field.

Plus, with gas prices on the rise and Americans paying a sizeable amount of their income to fill up their tank, what can we expect in the next few months? Will $5 gas become the norm? We get some context from Former Shell CEO John Hofmeister.

Watch this Sunday at 9 a.m. & noon ET.
