The BBC's North America Editor, Mark Mardell, and the BBC's Washington Bureau Editor, Simon Wilson, gave a CoJo lunchtime session looking ahead to the US presidential elections next year.
The elections may still be nearly 14 months away but the battle lines are already being drawn, both in terms of who will be standing against Barack Obama and what issues they'll be fighting on.
In the briefing, Mark and Simon outlined the key issues, the challenges facing President Obama and who the main Republican candidates are likely to be.
