SOTU Crib Sheet 2/3

ON STATE OF THE UNION

Candy Crowley sat down with Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman General Martin Dempsey to discuss Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel's confirmation hearings, the U.S. troop withdrawal in Afghanistan, and the threat of al Qaeda in North Africa and lingering questions about the Benghazi attack. Panetta says his biggest concern is "if the sequester is allowed to go into effect, I think it could seriously impact on the readiness in the United States. And that's a serious issue." Dempsey echoed him "I couldn't agree more. We face a true readiness crisis."

Then our panel – The Hill's Associate Editor A.B. Stoddard, Former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, Former Obama Adviser Melody Barnes and Time Magazine's Executive Editor Mike Duffy – talked immigration, guns, and the economy's mixed signals.

Plus, 2006 Super Bowl MVP Hines Ward shares his take on the growing focus on head injuries in the NFL "I mean, as players, we know what we sign up for. The NFL is not for everybody."

And finally, on Super Bowl Sunday what can Washington learn from football? Fmr. VA Sen. George Allen tells us they aren't so different.
