As the White House held talks this week with congressional leaders on raising the debt ceiling, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell demanded spending cuts and changes to Medicare and Medicaid as part of the deal. We’ll ask him in an exclusive interview about his party's demands and more.
However, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s Medicare overhaul plan isn't a must-have in the negotiations. We’ll ask Congressman Ryan about that in another exclusive interview.
Then, we turn to a week that finally saw some big names jump into the GOP 2012 presidential race. We’ll get a sneak peek into the mind of the campaigns with former Clinton senior adviser and spokesman Joe Lockhart and former Bush policy and strategy adviser Michael Gerson.
And finally, retaliation attacks in Pakistan, deadly protests in Syria, and Gadhafi finally emerges in Libya. We seek answers to all the foreign policy questions with two former directors of national intelligence: Adm. Dennis Blair (Ret.) and Amb. John Negroponte.
