Watch GPS: France's elections and Andrew Sullivan on being HIV positive

On GPS this Sunday - France's elections, India's missile test, the drug war in Mexico, and more.

I host an all-star GPS panel exploring the ramifications of this Sunday's French elections. His guests compare the first round to a U.S. primary, where politicians play to far ends of the spectrum. Anne-Marie Slaughter, Edward Luce, Bret Stephens and Emmanuel Saint-Martin weigh in.

Also: Hitting a BRIC wall. Investor Ruchir Sharma explains why Brazil, Russia, India, and China look tired. Instead, the future of growth lies elsewhere.

And then we have a moving interview with Newseek's Andrew Sullivan. He opens up about how being HIV positive delayed his getting a Green Card for 18 years. He's got his now, but he's still fighting to change a law that bars a gay Green-Card-seeker from qualifying via marriage to an American.

What in the World explores a controversial line of thinking: Despite 50,000 drug-related killings in 6 years, why Mexico may finally be winning the war on the cartels.

All that and more, on GPS this Sunday, 10a and 1p Eastern. Don't miss it!

    I watched with interest your moving coverage of Andrew Sullivan's efforts trying to be recognized as an American and his struggle to overcome discrimination.........especially because he is gay, HIV positive, and is married to an American.

    As a victim of similar discrimination against immigrants, I can confirm that the US Government State Dept DOES treat immigrants and naturalized Americans differently and as 2nd Class citizens......a recent case in point involves the naturalized American victims of the Pan Am 73 terrorist attack by Libya on the US (the first attempt of the Pan Am 103 Lockerbie attack).....The State Dept "espoused" only American claims but abandoned many more American victims because they were naturalized AFTER the attack, and because most of them were from South Asia??....see the WNYC coverage on this issue below

    Many of these victims have lived in the US for over 30 years and have NO other government to even represent them or espouse their claims!!!!

    The big question is what economic policies the Hollande government will implement if he wins but to Slaughter the only thing that matters is her talking points on the fear that they will not work with the US on Iran. She reminds me of Sarah Palin.
