It’s Wednesday, and here’s where we stand…

A lot of possible leads for our show this week, but it looks like Thursday’s debt talks could reveal whether we’re any closer to a deal before the August 2nd deadline. Both sides have dug in their heels over the past couple of weeks, yet there are some signs that a deal could be reached. There’s a lot at stake here, so it will be interesting to see how everything shakes out.

We’ve also got our eye on Friday’s NASA Shuttle launch. The 12-day Atlantis mission to the International Space Station will be the last before the program ends. The weather is looking iffy, so we’ll monitor that.

And we’re also scheduled to interview Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, the former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania. Santorum is looking to appeal to conservatives, especially in Iowa and New Hampshire. CNN’s latest poll in June had Santorum pulling in about 1 percent, but it’s still early and it’s anybody’s game.

Stay tuned for more updates as the week goes on!
