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!

SOTU Crib Sheet for February 12th

On State of the Union:

The contraception controversy and budget politics with White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew.  On the White House's controversial contraception policy he says the president has put out the plan that reflects where he intended to go. Room to compromise? Lew says "No. This is our plan."

Rick Santorum saw his winning streak come to an abrupt end this week at CPAC and in the Maine caucuses.  He doesn't put much stock in Romney's CPAC win, telling Candy: "For years, Ron Paul's won those because he just trucks in a lot of people, pays for their ticket, and they come in and vote. ... We didn't do that. We don't do that. I don't try to rig straw polls."

Senator Joe Lieberman, Chair of the Homeland Security Committee, on whether the Obama administration could/should do more to stop the Syrian government's deadly crackdown.  He told Candy "I think it's time to give them help. Medical help first, and then I'd give them training, I'd give them communications equipment, and then ultimately I'd give them weapons"

And a bit of a musical interlude. Make sure to check out this week's campaign trail, a look at the tunes selected by the candidates to accompany their comings and goings on the stage.
