    CNN's new "Amanpour," airing Sunday afternoon, has the week's biggest names, as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Robert Gates appear together.

    NBC’s “Meet the Press” offers a foreign policy-heavy line up, with Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and committee member Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), along with two retired generals – former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff retired Gen. Richard Myers and the former head of the U.S. Southern Command, retired Gen. Barry McCaffrey.

    Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Robert Casey (D-Penn.) stop by CNN’s “State of the Union.” And White House Communications Director Anita Dunn appears in the Reliable Sources segment, where she’ll surely be asked about her line this week that Fox News is "opinion journalism masquerading as news."
