This week is a busy one in Washington, D.C. President Barack Obama is expected to nominate U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court today. Then, Afghan President Hamid Karzai pays a visit to the White House to mend ties with the Obama administration.

In this week's Washington Report on WQXR, David Sanger, Chief Washington Correspondent for The New York Times, talks about the President's choice for the Supreme Court, what the White House hopes to accomplish with President Karzai and Attorney General Eric Holder's announcement on Sunday that the Pakistani Taliban was involved in the attempted Times Square bombing.
