POLITICO senior political writer, Maggie Haberman, recently shared with us what she thinks will be the five political flash points in 2013.
The list includes immigration reform, gun control legislation, action on climate change and a debt deal.
Haberman thinks the unexpected might come from the nomination of former Senator Chuck Hagel for Defense Secretary:
"I think Chuck Hagel is going to be pressured to make a more specific statement about where he stands...not just on the war in Afghanistan but also in terms of Israel and Iran."
