We will begin in Israel this morning where heavy fighting continues today after thousands of Israeli ground troops moved into Gaza last night.
Join us as we get the latest from Israeli President Shimon Peres from Jerusalem.
And, President-Elect Barack Obama begins lobbying Congress tomorrow to pass his massive jobs plan just as a full-scale ground war in the middle east threatens to present his first diplomatic test.
We will dig into both those challenges with our guests this morning: the Senate’s Democratic whip, Dick Durbin of Illinois and the most powerful Republican in Washington, GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell.
Plus, we’ll discuss the controversy over the Obama’s now vacant Senate seat with our This Week Roundtable: George Will, Cokie Roberts, Katrina Vanden Heuvel and Jonathan Karl.
See you then.
