She's the youngest governor in the country, and a Tea Party favorite who some see as a potential 2012 GOP vice presidential candidate. On "This Week," South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will size up the 2012 Republican presidential field and the budget battle in Washington. Which GOP candidate has the best shot at winning the coveted South Carolina primary? And are her Tea Party colleagues in Congress achieving their agenda since coming to the nation's capital? Christiane Amanpour talks with Haley in a "This Week" exclusive.
Then, as more Republican candidates test the presidential waters, some are finding it difficult to navigate around their own histories. Our "This Week" roundtable with George Will, Cokie Roberts and ABC News Political Director Amy Walter examines the current field, including Mitt Romney in his latest effort to explain his health care reform record. And two weeks after Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden, President Obama gets a bump in his approval numbers, but will it hold? That and all the week's politics on our roundtable.
Plus, as the economy remains the top issue for voters in the coming election year, where are the jobs? When will the recovery feel like a recovery? Christiane talks with Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, FDIC Chairwoman Sheila Bair, Former Deputy Treasury Secretary Roger Altman and former Congressional Budget Office Director and McCain economic adviser Douglas Holtz-Eakin about the battle over taxes and government spending, and how the debate will affect what's in your wallet.
How will U.S. foreign policy change in a world without bin Laden? And will the violent crackdown in Syria and a potential stalemate in Libya bring a halt to the wave of change sweeping over the Middle East? Top foreign policy voices Richard Haass of the Council on Foreign Relations, Robert Kagan of the Brookings Institution and Anthony Shadid of The New York Times weigh in on the turbulent Arab spring.
All ahead Sunday on "This Week with Christiane Amanpour." You won't want to miss it.
