    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5327H] Economic indicators suggest a number of positive signs going into the New Year. Job creation picked up in the last quarter of 2013 and unemployment hit a new low. The stock market started 2014 at record highs while the housing market is expected to continue its slow and steady recovery. But for more than a million long-term unemployed, there is little to celebrate after lawmakers failed to agree on an extension of benefits.
    Congress ended its 2013 session on a note of compromise passing a bipartisan budget agreement. Will 2014 see similar consensus on Capitol Hill over issues like the debt ceiling, and immigration reform, especially in the wake of upcoming mid-term elections that could change who controls Congress for the president's final two years.
    During his final news conference of last year, President Obama said 2014 would be "a breakthrough year for America." But as the president enters his sixth year in office, he faces global challenges beyond the lingering questions about NSA surveillance practices. There are still ongoing negotiations with Iran over its nuclear capabilities, plus the planned exit of US troops from Afghanistan.
    This week we look ahead to the 2014 priorities and challenges for the White House and Congress with Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times, Alexis Simendinger of RealClearPolitics.com, Amy Walter of The Cook Political Report, and Jeff Zeleny of ABC News.
