SOTU Sneak Peek

There is no shortage of stories dominating the news this week, but what will be leading the headlines on Sunday morning?  Here’s what our staff is discussing for Sunday’s show.

Today, a bipartisan group of congressional negotiators signed off on an agreement to extend the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits for the rest of the year.  Meanwhile, the number of people seeking unemployment benefits fell to the lowest point in nearly four years last week. It’s the latest signal that the job market is steadily improving. How will an improving economy and better poll numbers for President Obama impact the presidential race? We’ll talk to presidential candidate Ron Paul.

On the international front, we’re keeping a close eye on Iran’s posturing over its nuclear program and the latest effort by the U.N. to force Syria’s president out.

Also, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz on his business initiatives.

Keep checking back for updates!
