Washington Week

Episode #4250

Moderator: Gwen Ifill. Just one week after President Bush joined leaders Mahmoud Abbas and Ariel Sharon to map out a peaceful future for the Middle East, renewed violence has erupted in the region. David Sanger of The New York Times joins us live from the president's vacation home in Kennebunkport, Maine, to analyze recent events and explain what they mean for President Bush's role in the peace process. In Iraq, the hunt for weapons of mass destruction continues. Questions about their likely existence persist here at home. Martha Raddatz of ABC News has the latest. Turning to domestic matters, the president spent part of his week drumming up support for his plan to modify the Medicare system. Will Congress agree to his blueprint? What will the changes mean for seniors? Ceci Connolly of The Washington Post addresses the issues. Hillary Clinton's memoir hit the bookshelves this week, generating sales to rival Harry Potter and set off a flurry of renewed analysis of the Clinton years. Gloria Borger of US News and World Report and CNBC evaluates the phenomenon. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
