Sunday Talk Shows: Justice Sotomayor in her first broadcast interview
Meet the Press
Gen. Colin Powell (Ret.) speaks out exclusively to Meet the Press to make the case for fellow Vietnam war veteran Chuck Hagel as President Obama’s pick for Secretary of Defense. Also, with important decisions looming regarding United States’ role in Afghanistan, the former secretary of state weighs in on where he sees America’s place in an increasingly complex world. Plus, he endorsed the president in 2008 and 2012, what would he like to see from the commander-in-chief during a second term?
As Washington gears up for the upcoming fight over the debt ceiling and contentious confirmation hearings for the president’s cabinet picks, how are both sides positioning themselves politically? What do the president’s nominees tell us about his second-term agenda? What, if anything, can get done in Washington? Our roundtable weighs in: Newark’s Democratic Mayor Cory Booker; Fmr. Gov. Haley Barbour GOP strategist Mike Murphy; and NBC’s Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell

ABC This Week
As President Obama announces his new national security team, Armed Services Committee member Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., and Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., ranking member of the Foreign Relations Committee, join Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass and ABC News Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz to discuss the nominations, plus the debate over Afghanistan and the latest threats from Iran.
Will former Sen. Chuck Hagel survive contentious confirmation hearings to become the next defense secretary? As Hamid Karzai visits Washington, how many troops should the U.S. keep in Afghanistan? And will Iran pose the greatest challenge overseas in President Obama's second term? Our foreign policy roundtable tackles those topics and more, Sunday on "This Week."
Then, the powerhouse political roundtable breaks down the domestic battles ahead, from the looming budget cliffs to the gun control debate to the fight over President Obama's Cabinet picks, with Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman; Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan; Bloomberg News executive editor Al Hunt; "PBS NewsHour" co-anchor and senior correspondent Judy Woodruff; and David Walker, former U.S. comptroller general and founder and CEO of the Comeback America Initiative.

Up w/Chris Hayes
Diversity in the Obama cabinet, John Brennan and the CIA, Lance Armstrong, the Baseball Hall of Fame and accountability for doping
On Sunday’s Up w/ Chris Hayes, we’ll discuss the apparent lack of diversity among President Obama’s recent cabinet appointments. This week, President Obama announced three cabinet appointments, all of whom were white men. Then we’ll focus in on one of those appointments in particular. This week, President Obama nominated his trusted counter-terrorism adviser, John Brennan, to head the CIA. Brennan’s name was last floated as a possible CIA director in 2008, when his full-throated defense of the Bush-era policies of rendition and enhanced interrogation techniques short of waterboarding — which he says is torture — prompted widespread outrage. What’s changed to make Brennan’s nomination so much more acceptable this time around?
There hasn’t been much accountability for the sorts of practices Brennan and others advocated, just as there’s been little accountability for fraud on Wall Street and dysfunction in our political system. But there is at least one area of American life where wrongdoing and unethical behavior have been widely and strongly condemned: professional sports. We’ll look at the latest developments in the crackdown on the use of performance enhancing drugs in both baseball and cycling. Why has there been so much accountability in sports, and so little elsewhere?

3. Many thanks, cal04!
First time I've seen Manchin all over the teevee. Teaming up with a repub. to promote "no labels" yet. What a DINO.
Looking forward to seeing Sotomayor, however!
