President Obama laid out his plans for a troop draw-down in Afghanistan this week. We’ll talk to a dissenting voice in Congress, Rep. Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
Then, with budget talks in Washington officially stalled, how will Congress address the deficit, and an impending deadline for raising the debt ceiling? We’ll speak first with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi; then to conservative Sen. Jim DeMint.
Finally, we’ll talk presidential politics with Bill Burton, former deputy press secretary for President Obama, and Michael Gerson, former speechwriter for President George W. Bush.
