President Obama speaks to the media after meeting with Congressional leaders on March 1, 2013, saying no agreement was reached with Republicans to avoid the sequester.

The deadline to come up with a deal to avoid sequestration has come and gone. President Obama made some dire predictions about the March 1 deadline, so what political and economic fallout are we actually dealing with? Now that Chuck Hagel's rocky confirmation as defense secretary is over, will John Brennan, Obama's pick for CIA director, get the same treatment? We'll take a look at the big political stories of the week with a team of Washington experts.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Julie Hirschfeld Davis, congressional and politics reporter for Bloomberg News
  • Marc Sandalow, associate academic director at the University of California's Washington Center and Washington editor of the California News Service
