Coming Up on ‘This Week’

May 1, 2009 12:01pm

On the show this Sunday: Chair of the Judiciary Committee, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and the Committee’s longest serving Republican, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Ut. With the news that Justice David Souter plans to resign at the end of this term, we’ll debate the future of the courts, how the Obama administration will handle this additional challenge, and who is likely to fill Souter’s seat. Also newly confirmed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, and acting CDC Director Richard Besser will join me to discuss the government’s response to the H1N1 "swine flu" virus, the potential economic impact, and the nation’s future pandemic preparedness. Plus, joining me on the Roundtable Sunday: George Will, New York Times columnist, economist and ABC News contributor Paul Krugman, PBS’s Gwen Ifill, and the Wall Street Journal’s Gerald Seib. We’ll discuss the week’s politics, including the political bombshell of side-switching Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, and the upcoming release of the administration’s "stress tests" on struggling banks. Have a question for our guests or a news tip for me?  Email me here. See you Sunday morning. –George Stephanopoulos
