This Sunday: General Colin Powell (Ret.) speaks out exclusively to Meet the Press to make the case for fellow Vietnam war veteran Chuck Hagel as President Obama's pick for Secretary of Defense. Also, with important decisions looming regarding the United States' role in Afghanistan, the former secretary of state weighs in on where he sees America's place in an increasingly complex world. Plus, he endorsed the president in 2008 and 2012, what would he like to see from the commander-in-chief during a second term?

Then: As Washington gears up for the upcoming fight over the debt ceiling and contentious confirmation hearings for the president's cabinet picks, how are both sides positioning themselves politically? What do the president's nominees tell us about his second-term agenda? What, if anything, can get done in Washington? Our roundtable weighs in: Newark's Democratic Mayor Cory Booker, Fmr. Gov. Haley Barbour (R-MS), GOP strategist Mike Murphy, and NBC's Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
