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 are some stories we're keeping our eye on.

Debt battle 2.O? House Speaker John Boehner is drawing a line in the sand over the nation's debt ceiling. He says when it's time to raise the limit again he'll only accept spending cuts and no tax increases. The White House says it won't accept a replay of last summer, when the U.S. Went to the brink of default. Senators Barbara Boxer and Kay Bailey Hutchison join us to discuss the possibility of another debt stalemate.

Mitt Romney's business past. The Obama campaign launched an all-out assault on Romney's record at Bain Capital, saying the company made lots of money while killing lots of middle-class jobs. Will the presumptive Republican nominee be damaged by attacks against what is supposed to be his strongest suit?

The G8 and NATO summits. President Obama hosts leaders from the world's richest nations at Camp David Friday and Saturday before heading to his hometown Chicago for the NATO summit. At the Camp David meeting the crisis in Syria tops the agenda, while issue number one at the NATO gathering will be Afghanistan.

Much more to come, make sure to check back on Friday for our full rundown and don't forget to tune in Sunday at 9am and noon ET.
