Welcome to Sneak Peek, our weekly lookahead for both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue. Housekeeping note: I'm off to Australia tomorrow but stay with the Axios stream for all the latest news and a very special Sneak Peek will come from Mike Allen next Sunday. See you again to kick off 2018 on Dec. 31.

Axios events: if you're in D.C. Tuesday morning, join Mike and Axios' Evan Ryan for a discussion on health care innovations with Aneesh Chopra, The United States' first Chief Technology Officer. They'll be joined by Arianna Huffington and the presidents & CEOs of NewYork-Presbyterian and PhRMA. RSVP here.
