The “Inside Politics” Forecast: Conservative Democrats run to the left on Social Security

CNN's John King and other top political reporters empty out their notebooks each Sunday on "Inside Politics" to reveal five things that will be in the headlines in the days, weeks and months ahead.

1. Conservative Democrats running to Obama’s left on Social Security:  Many Democrats see the need to get distance from President Barack Obama this midterm election year and in many states that means demanding changes to the Affordable Care Act. We’ve also seen energy state Democrats, like vulnerable Sens. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Mark Begich of Alaska, lambaste the administration for delaying a big decision about the Keystone pipeline.

Inside Politics: The age question

Washington (CNN) – Forget, for now, the traditional debates over taxes and spending or national security.

The flashpoint in presidential politics, at the moment anyway, seems to be more about age.

Or experience. Or maturity. Or something like that.

The "Inside Politics" Forecast: Another Governor Carter in Georgia?

CNN's John King and other top political reporters empty out their notebooks each Sunday on "Inside Politics" to reveal five things that will be in the headlines in the days, weeks and months ahead.

1. Another Governor Carter in Georgia?: Republicans are looking to make gains coast to coast this midterm election year, while Democrats are largely on defense. But Georgia – yes Georgia – is one unlikely source of guarded Democratic optimism - in part because of two famous names on the ballot.

A crowded Republican Senate primary field could potentially help Democrat Michelle Nunn. And GOP Gov. Nathan Deal took a hit in the polls after a disastrous response to a big snow storm last year which leaves an opening for state Sen. Jason Carter.

The 'Inside Politics' forecast: Recruiting Sink to run again

CNN's John King and other top political reporters empty out their notebooks each Sunday on "Inside Politics" to reveal five things that will be in the headlines in the days, weeks and months ahead.

1. RECRUITING SINK TO RUN AGAIN: Alex Sink is suddenly back in vogue as Democrats look to try again in a Florida House district they lost in a special election last month.

Sink was their candidate then, and a lot of Democrats blamed a subpar campaign on her narrow loss. But Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee leaders remain convinced she is their best candidate in November.

The "Inside Politics" Forecast: GOP donors look to Walker, Rubio

CNN's John King and other top political reporters empty out their notebooks each Sunday on "Inside Politics" to reveal five things that will be in the headlines in the days, weeks and months ahead.

1. GOP donors look to Walker, Rubio: Iowa, of course, remains the first official stop in the presidential nominating process. But there was an early GOP trial of sorts over the last several days in Las Vegas, and the buzz out of the meeting is a telling snapshot of the early – very early – state of play.

The Republican Jewish Coalition meeting drew a handful of GOP prospects and while the host, GOP megadonor Sheldon Adelson, got most of the attention, the gathering featured many important Republican fundraisers and activists.

The "Inside Politics" Forecast: Jindal trying to sign up 2016 N.H. Team

CNN's John King and other top political reporters empty out their notebooks each Sunday on "Inside Politics" to reveal five things that will be in the headlines in the days, weeks and months ahead.

1. Jindal, Christie & Paul making big moves in N.H.: As if New Hampshire didn't have enough political news already! Republican Scott Brown's decision to explore a Senate race got him presidential attention this week, but that was hardly the only big political news unfolding in the Granite State. A pro-Hillary SuperPac made a public splash, and three Republicans likely to pursue the 2016 GOP presidential nomination were busy with some private political maneuvering.

Inside Politics: GOP debate over policy and personalities

Washington (CNN) – It's getting personal on all fronts as Republicans debate the wisdom of their leaders - present and future.

Two leading GOP 2016 contenders, the freshmen Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, are in a public spat over foreign policy that quickly became framed around what seems to be the perennial GOP question: Who is the heir to Ronald Reagan?
