This Sunday on State of the Union...

For Congress and President Obama, the clock is ticking and the choice seems clear: compromise on deficit reduction measures and raise the nation’s debt ceiling, or don’t and risk the country defaulting on its obligations.

We’ll speak to House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy and the ranking member of the House Budget Committee, Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen.

Then, a discussion with GOP Presidential candidate Rick Santorum. It’s early, but he’s already playing catch up. Can he beat expectations in a key Iowa straw poll next month?

And on the heels of the final Shuttle lift-off, a look at the future of space exploration for the United States.
