Potatoes & Politics:
Watch Larry King Live for a night of pomp and circumstance as President and Mrs. Obama host their first state dinner. The guests of honor: Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife. We'll talk to Jennifer Hudson, who will perform at the very exclusive event. Plus, celebrity chefs Paula Deen and Wolfgang Puck join the conversation (Paula will also dish about her little run-in with a ham)! And don't miss former White House chefs reminiscing about their favorite state dinners.
President Obama's decision about troop levels in Afghanistan could come as early as next week. What is the President's strategy in the war? Has he taken too long to make a decision? We'll talk to Matthew Hoh, the former State Department staffer who quit in protest of the war in Afghanistan, and retired Gen. Wesley Clark.
That's all tonight at 9ET/6PT!
And we want to hear from you:
If you were hosting a state dinner, what would be on your menu?
