Guests and Topics for Oct. 7

Here's what is on tap for Thursday:

'FOX & Friends First' (6 a.m. ET)

As President Bush (search) and Senator Kerry (search) get set to go head-to-head in a town-hall style debate Friday night, which candidate has the edge? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from Cheri Jacobus, Republican strategist, and Jon-Christopher Bua, Democratic strategist.

In round two of the presidential debates the audience asks the questions. How will this format change the candidates' strategy? We'll ask Timothy Koegel, author of "The Exceptional Presenter."

Are we winning the war against Al Qaeda? We'll get insight from George Friedman, author of "America's Secret War."

'FOX & Friends' (7 a.m. ET)

Iraq has become the central theme to the presidential debate over foreign policy. Should we stay the course, or choose a new path? We'll ask Dan Senor, former Coalition Provisional Authority spokesman for Iraq.

Sparks flew in Tuesday's vice presidential debate. Did it set the stage for Friday's showdown between Senator Kerry and President Bush? Dr. Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics and author of "Midterm Madness," weighs in.

We'll be joined by Grammy Award-winning artist Leann Rimes, author of "Jag's New Friend." Leann is also the spokesperson for National Eczema Awareness Month.

Plus, when you drop by "FOX & Friends" you never know who — or what — you're going to find. And Thursday is no exception as Ginny Busch, animal ambassador from Discovery Cove in Orlando, Florida, stops by with some unusual friends.

And, 14-year-old Bethany Hamilton (search) loves to surf. But a shark attack almost ended her athletic ambitions. She joins us in studio.
