Topics and Guests for Thursday,
May 15:

From attacking American soldiers to sabotaging Iraq's power grid, well-armed remnants of Saddam Hussein's regime continue to wage a campaign that is stalling the United States' reconstruction efforts (search).

Will Iraqi popular support for the coalition’s presence in Iraq be undermined? We’ll ask Time magazine's Michael Weisskopf.

Plus, more than 260 prisoners were taken into custody Thursday in a pre-dawn U.S. Army raid near Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit, including one man on the United States' "most-wanted" list of former Iraqi officials. We’ll get the very latest from FOX News correspondent David Lee Miller.

And, Senate Republicans secured just enough votes Thursday to temporarily eliminate taxes on stock dividends and preserve the foundation of President Bush's formula for using tax cuts to stimulate a languid economy. We’ll have a complete report from FOX News correspondent Brian Wilson.

What do Monday's deadly bombings in Saudi Arabia tell us about Al Qaeda's capabilities? We’ll ask Jonathan Stevenson from the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

President Bush is known for being very aggressive when it comes to getting his way on Capitol Hill. From homeland security to tax cuts and judicial nominees is there any danger he's using up his political capital? We’ll ask Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich.

Plus, we’ll take a look at the controversial political tactic of gerrymandering -- redrawing the lines of voter districts often for the sole purpose of throwing advantage to one, or the other political party – with FOX News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano.

That story and more... tonight on The Big Story at 5 p.m ET.
