This Sunday...

With both parties bruised over the fiscal cliff wrangling, how will Congress tackle the next fights over spending and the debt ceiling? Plus, President Obama is expected to outline his 2nd term agenda in the next few days, but how much can he accomplish in a gridlocked Washington? We’ll talk to Senator Dick Durbin, the number two Democrat in the Senate, and influential Republican Senator Lindsey Graham.

Can new members change business as usual in Congress? We’ll talk to two Freshman: Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D) of North Dakota and Congressman Richard Hudson (R) of North Carolina.

This week’s drama over the fiscal cliff exposed deep political and policy chasms between both sides. Progressives insist they’re not compromising on spending, while Conservatives insist cuts must be put in place soon. We’ll talk with Neera Tanden from the left-leaning Center for American Progress, right-leaning economist Stephen Moore, CNN Senior Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash, and Jackie Calmes of the New York Times.

Watch State of the Union with Candy Crowley Sunday 9am and Noon.
