Tonight on Hannity & Colmes... join the debate!

Live from Philly

We tackle the tough issues in a live heated debate at the Forrest Theatre (search) in Philadelphia.

In attendance will be thirty lucky FOX Fans — 15 Hannity and 15 Colmes devotees — who had a chance to win exclusive stage seating at the event. Sign up and become a FOX Fan so you don’t miss out on future offers.

Rush Limbaugh (search) resigns from ESPN for racially charged comments, but  dismisses the situation as ‘a tempest in a teapot.'

Should Limbaugh be chastised for his comments, or was he entitled to opine as a commentator? Tonight’s debate will be live from the center of the controversy — Philadelphia — Home of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Our guests will also deliberate over the other hot-button issues of the day.

Joining us will be:

• Bill Bennett, Empower America       
Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell       
• Mike Gallagher, radio talk show host
• Ellen Ratner, radio talk show host       
• Susan Estrich, FNC political analyst

Watch Hannity & Colmes LIVE  this evening at 9 p.m. ET!
