This Sunday...

Joe Johns fills in for Candy on “State of the Union with Candy Crowley.”

First on the program, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Sen. Robert Menendez (D- N.J.,) discuss the politics of a payroll tax cut amid the Senate’s 89-10 vote in favor of extending the cut and unemployment benefits by two months.

Then, GOP Presidential Candidate  Jon Huntsman sees a slight bump in the New Hampshire polls – a state he’s focused his campaign on exclusively – but Romney holds a clear lead in the Granite State.  We’ll ask the Republican presidential candidate about his strategy, the economy, and his GOP rivals.

Also, we'll talk about the end of the U.S. war in Iraq.  We’ll get perspective from former presidential envoy to Iraq, Paul Bremer; former Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. James Cartwright (Ret.); and Robin Wright author of “Rock the Casbah”.

It’s all this Sunday  at 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. ET

 

UPDATE:  Director of the President's National Economic Council Gene Sperling will be on the show.

SOTU Sneak Peek

A sneak peek of some stories we’re following today, but what will be leading the headlines on Sunday morning?

All quiet on the Iraq front? After almost nine years, nearly 4,500 Americans lives, more than 30,000 wounded, and an estimated 100,000 Iraqi civilians killed, the military declares an official end to the war in Iraq in a ceremony in Baghdad on Thursday. Just 200 troops will remain as part of the diplomatic mission along with almost 15,000 U.S. Embassy personnel. Questions remain about the future of a country marked by almost a decade of violence, a fledgling new democracy and a strained infrastructure. Will the pullout of US troops bring a resurgence of bloodshed?

Candy's Post Show Rundown

CANDY’S POST-GAME ANALYSIS

Watch the video

On State of the Union:
Listening to Rick Santorum, you are going to see, you are going to hear some interesting things over the next three weeks before the Iowa caucuses. Remember, on the debate on Saturday night Santorum had very nice things to say about Newt Gingrich by in large saying that he inspired him to get into conservative politics, etc., etc., and today talking about Gingrich he said, ‘You know I’m just saying, after three years in the leadership there was a coup to try and get rid of Newt Gingrich’ and that doesn’t happen very often, so even those who consider themselves admirers of Newt Gingrich understand that you have to go after him and certainly Santorum did that in this morning’s interview.
