April 1, 2007
Our guests this week include:
• Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), Senate Minority Leader
• Senator Joe Biden (D-Delaware), Foreign Relations Committee Chairman/ 2008 Presidential Candidate
The White House and Democrats are standing eyeball to eyeball over issues that could determine the rest of the Bush presidency — but who will blink first? First, a major setback for the Bush administration this week, as the Senate joined the House in passing legislation calling for U.S. troops to leave Iraq by 2008. President Bush has vowed to veto the bill, but military officials warn that the billions of dollars in funding are urgently needed to continue the war. Will the president compromise on a withdrawal date, or will Democrats backtrack to ensure they are not seen as cutting funding to the troops?
Also, with increasing evidence that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales was not being completely candid regarding his role in the U.S. Attorney firings, how long will he last? And, will Democrats subpoena key White House officials to testify on the matter? We get the latest analysis from the Senate Republican Leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell and a 2008 presidential candidate and influential Democratic Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Sen. Joe Biden.
Our panel will then discuss the latest developments in the 2008 Presidential Race. Joining us will be Brit Hume of Fox News, Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard and Mara Liasson of National Public Radio.
Plus, our power player of the week is the man in charge of monitoring everything from satellites to cell phones-including almost everything you watch on television and listen to on the radio —Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin.
