    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5321H] * The Senate went nuclear on Thursday. After threatening for months, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) orchestrated a new rule allowing for the confirmation of judicial nominees with a simple 51-vote majority. President Obama applauded the change calling out Republicans for stalling the confirmation of his nominees in what he called a "pattern of obstruction [that] just isn't normal." Republicans fumed that the rule change was a power grab designed to deflect the focus away from the rocky implementation of the president's Affordable Care Act. Susan Davis of USA Today will explain why Democrats decided to exercise the so-called "nuclear option" and how it is sure to strain already tenuous relations along both sides of the aisle in Congress.
    * Secretary of State John Kerry announced a tentative security deal with the Afghan government that will keep an undetermined number of US troops in Afghanistan through 2024. Afghan President Hamid Karzai announced that he supports the plan but will not sign the agreement until after next year's presidential elections. James Kitfield of National Journal will explain how Karzai's decision is playing into the delicate negotiations in Kabul to determine the size and scope of the long-term US mission in Afghanistan as America's longest war moves into its 13th year.
    * Martha Raddatz of ABC News will report on this week's debate on the Senate floor that pitted one Democrat against another and many lawmakers against Pentagon commanders over how the military should handle sexual assaults and rapes within the ranks.
    * During his 3 years in office President John F. Kennedy navigated a crisis that could have triggered a nuclear war with the former Soviet Union and laid the groundwork for the enactment of the Civil Rights Act. Michael Duffy of Time Magazine will look back on JFK's accomplishments during his 1000 days in office and the legacy that lives on 50 years after his assassination.
