This Sunday: A special interview with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, who just returned from the war zones of Afghanistan and Iraq. Did the leak of secret Afghan war documents endanger the lives of American troops and Afghan civilians? Does this leak expose a fatal flaw in the U.S. war strategy in Afghanistan? The President's top military adviser thinks so and will explain why.
Next, we explore more behind today's economic uncertainty, and why the economy still feels a lot like the recession. How will Americans get back to work? We’ll have an exclusive conversation with three key voices: the Mayor of the most populous city in the U.S., New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg (I); the man who served as Chairman on the Federal Reserve for 19 years, Alan Greenspan; and the Governor of the state with the 6th largest economy in the U.S., Gov. Ed Rendell (D-PA).
Then, our political roundtable discusses the various leadership tests for President Obama in this highly charged political year: Afghanistan, the economy, immigration. What will be foremost on voters’ minds when they head to the polls in November? Plus, a potential embarrassment for Democratic leaders during the election season if the ethics charges against long-time Ways and Means Chairman Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) result in a public trial. We'll get insights on it all from Presidential Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and msnbc Senior Political Analyst, Editor-at-Large & Senior Political Analyst for TIME, and Co-Author of "Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime", Mark Halperin.
