Former Obama 2012 campaign manager Jim Messina faces off with former Bush deputy chief of staff Karl Rove, only on "This Week" Sunday.

Messina, chair of the newly formed Organizing for Action, and Rove, a Fox News contributor who helped found American Crossroads, join the "This Week" powerhouse roundtable to debate all the week's politics, including the battles in Washington on guns, immigration, and gay marriage, with "Nightline" co-anchor Terry Moran, who covers the Supreme Court for ABC News; Democratic strategist and ABC News contributor Donna Brazile; and Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan.

Then, as President Obama returns from the first overseas trip of his second term, a special foreign policy roundtable examines major challenges abroad, including the U.S. relationship with Israel and the prospects for reviving Middle East peace talks, and how the United States should handle the growing crisis in Syria, with ABC News global affairs anchor Christiane Amanpour; Atlantic national correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg; former Romney campaign senior adviser Dan Senor, co-founder of the Foreign Policy Initiative; and Time Magazine assistant managing editor Rana Foroohar.

Plus, in this week's Sunday Spotlight, director Alexandra Pelosi and former New Jersey Gov.Jim McGreevey discuss their new HBO film, "Fall to Grace," about McGreevey's life and work since his controversial exit from office.
