We saw Kobe Bryant make his brief courtroom appearance in Colorado on Wednesday. Why didn't his wife accompany him? Attorney Jacalyn Barnett feels that Vanessa should have been by his side.

FOX & Friends (7 a.m. ET)

Word is that Saddam Hussein (search) is moving as often as three times a day. With mounting pressure and more of his supporters snagged, should we expect a Saddam capture soon? Retired Delta Force Capt. Wade Ishimoto will fill us in.

Kobe Bryant may be brilliant on the basketball court, but can he get his game on to survive the media glare surrounding his sexual assault trial? Chris Bevilacqua, co-founder and executive vice president of College Sports Television (search) will join us to discuss the issue.

His affair with Washington intern Chandra Levy made headlines. Now the new documentary Public Service: The Private Campaign of Gary Condit reveals another side of the former congressman. The filmmakers, Aaron Garcia and Kristina Holland will join us from Sacramento.

The Terminator has turned up the heat. Arnold is running for governor. Does he have what it takes? The Beltway Boys, Fred Barnes and Mort Kondracke will tell us!

Criminal defense attorney Geoffrey Fieger will tell us how the defense can make Kobe Bryant look good for the jury.

We'll also have the king of auto racing with us, Richard Petty.

One basketball team owner actually thinks that the Kobe case is good for business, although sponsors don't seem to be buying into that theory. So what's the future for Kobe's contracts? Here to fill us in is Gregg Hymowitz, founder of Entrust Capital.

And the star of the new film, Le Divorce, Matthew Modine will join us to speak about the film.
