This Sunday...

An Exclusive interview with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on gridlock in Congress, the President’s meetings with Republicans, and what it will take to get her to sign off on a budget deal and entitlement reform.

Then, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) joins us exclusively to discuss the spring thaw between President Obama and Congressional Republicans, and on if he’s leaving the GOP leadership out in the cold.

Speaking of coming in from the cold, he’s been laying low the past couple of years, but a new book is bringing Jeb Bush back in to the national spotlight. He may be talking immigration between the pages, but he’s got tongues wagging with his open talk of a potential 2016 run. We sit down with former Florida Governor – and presidential brother and son – Jeb Bush about political dynasties, Bush fatigue, and his upcoming pow-wow with top Republican donors.

Plus, former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, former Speaker of the House and Republican Presidential Candidate Newt Gingrich, former Bush and Romney adviser Alex Castellanos and Democratic Strategist Donna Brazile on the long road to 2016, Rand Paul’s long talk on the Senate floor, and why you won’t be seeing any more long lines for White House tours any time soon.

SOTU Sneak Peek

Washington, D.C. is the worst when a storm hits.
Federal offices and school districts across D.C. were shut down Wednesday as threats of a storm dropping up to a foot of snow on the region loomed. Just how much snowfall did the District see? Pretty much zilch.

Surprisingly, what the so-called "Snowquester" didn’t stop was the Hill’s efforts to find a solution to its namesake – the dreaded forced budget cuts. On Wednesday night, President Obama picked up the tab for a high-profile dinner with a group of Senate Republicans in the chief executive’s most recent effort to find a bipartisan solution to the forced budget cuts that began to take effect March 1. The President followed up with a second day of outreach to Republicans, lunching Thursday with House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), the top Democrat on the committee, at the White House.
