SOTU Sneak Peek for November 6, 2011

While one certain story has been grabbing the headlines, we here at State of the Union are monitoring all the week's political events.

First, the obvious:  Herman Cain's evolving controversy over sexual harassment allegations from the 1990s.  It now appears Cain thinks he's found the leak, a former consultant to his 2004 Senate campaign who is now associated with the Perry campaign.  The consultant denies the charges, all while Cain is still riding high in the polls.  But will he stay at the top if this story continues to grow more legs?

But there's other news:  President Obama heads to France tonight for the G-20 conference, but he's not expected to be the center of attention.  All eyes will be on Germany's Merkel and France's Sarkozy as they try to keep their Eurozone debt plan in tact.  Will the U.S. take a bigger role in tackling the financial issues in Europe?

And Congress has a busy week:  A vote on President Obama's infrastructure plan, a resolution reaffirming "In God We Trust" as the national motto, and a plan to save the Postal Service.

And while I'm sure you'll hear a lot about tax breaks in the coming weeks and months, have you ever heard of tax breaks..for mustaches?

We'll watch all these stories and more for you to create the best hour of television this Sunday.  Stay tuned.
