Guests and Topics: December 12

Behind every significant change in American history -- There lies a great debate. Freedom of speech entitles all Americans to stand up for what they believe in. There are two sides to every coin, and a true debate will bring forth fair and balanced facts. So stay with the # 1 nightly debate program on cable news because -- We Debate. You Decide.

Tonight on Hannity & Colmes:

• We'll debate all the day's hot and disputatious political topics with former N.Y. Sen. Al D'amato and former Vice Presidential Candidate Geraldine Ferraro.

• Signs seem to be pointing up -- What is really going on with the economy? Are we finally headed for 'good times?'

FNC business news managing editor Neil Cavuto offers insight.

• The Democratic presidential candidates have been getting a lot of press coverage -- But are we seeing the whole picture? Is the Democratic frontrunner Howard Dean (search) actually more liberal than the mainstream press is willing to admit? Might it be true that mainstream reporters can't spot a liberal when he or she is right in front of them?

Bernie Goldberg, author of Arrogance: Rescuing America From the Media Elite, weighs in.

• Is the Bush administration economically irresponsible? Does the White House pick business over the environment? Or -- are these notions just a platform set by environmental extremists?

Mark Longabaugh from the League Of Conservation Voters and Jonathon Adler from National Review Online join the debate.

Don't miss Hannity & Colmes LIVE this evening at 9 p.m. ET!
