Our exclusive headliners on ‘This Week’ Sunday: Sens. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and John Cornyn, R-Tex., of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Both senators will play an important role in the upcoming confirmation hearings of President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor. When Sotomayor makes the rounds on Capitol Hill on Monday, Sen. Schumer will escort her and will shepherd her through the confirmation process.

We’ll discuss the pitched political battle that has already begun over Sotomayor’s Supreme Court nomination … a preview of the Senate confirmation hearings to come.

Plus, with me to discuss the Sotomayor hearings, the impact of any potential GM bankruptcy, the North Korean nuclear threat  and all the week’s politics  … an expanded version of the Roundtable this week: ABC contributor George Will, ABC’s Supreme Court correspondent Jan Crawford Greenburg, New York Times columnist, economist and ABC contributor Paul Krugman, PBS’ Gwen Ifill and former Bush adviser Ed Gillespie.

Email or Twitter me any questions you have for our guests.

You don’t want to miss this show. See you Sunday morning.
