We'll bring you coverage of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama in Washington.

Also, Martin Stringer speaks with his journalist guests: Susan Lunn, parliamentary reporter for CBC Radio, and Daniel Proussalidis, parliamentary bureau chief for Astral Media. They'll discuss:

1. The Harper/Obama meeting:

* What was achieved?
* Specifically, what about the discussions of a "Security Perimeter" with the Americans?

2. The Return of Parliament:
Parliamentarians wrapped up their first week back in Ottawa after the six-week holiday recess. We'll look at the political landscape...

* Are we headed towards a spring election, triggered by next month's federal budget?
* Which party might be amenable to supporting the budget, and preventing an election?
* What are the political considerations behind it all?
