Tonight on Hannity & Colmes

Both houses of Congress planned to open debate Tuesday on the long-awaited resolution giving President Bush the latitude he wants to confront Saddam Hussein.

Billed as an "important speech" about Iraq, President Bush told the nation Monday night that Saddam poses a unique threat that must be addressed now rather than later. Empower America’s Bill Bennett weighs in on President Bush’s speech tonight on Hannity & Colmes.

And why did the big three networks decide the presidential address wasn't worth their time? Are ratings more important than a president's message to his people? Join that debate!

Today a group of 26 congressional Democrats, led by Toledo, Ohio's Marcy Kaptur, spoke out on Capitol Hill against giving President Bush authority to use force against Iraq. Speaking at a news conference, Kaptur said, "Iraq is a grave and gathering threat, not an immediate threat. An immediate threat would be a trigger for war. We have time." Marcy Kaptur will join the debate on Hannity & Colmes.

Thomas Sypniewski, a senior at one New Jersey public high school, is fighting for his First Amendment rights after being suspended for wearing a T-shirt listing the "Top 10 Reasons You Might Be A Redneck Sports Fan." Now Sypniewski is asking federal courts to declare the school's dress code an unconstitutionally broad restriction on his speech.
Thomas Sypniewski, who was suspended for wearing the shirt and Gerald Walpin, the attorney representing Thomas talk about the case.

Don't miss Hannity & Colmes, the most unpredictable show on television, tonight at 9 p.m. ET
