Guests and Topics for Oct. 12

Here's what is on tap for Tuesday:

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

With no clear frontrunner in the polls, there's a lot at stake for both candidates in Wednesday night's third presidential debate (search). Who has the best chance for a knock out performance? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from Democratic strategist Doug Schoen and Republican strategist Randy Tate.

And, meet the man who read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica and survived to write about it, A.J. Jacobs, senior editor for Esquire magazine and author of "The Know It All."

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

What can we expect from round three of the presidential debates? We'll ask Jennifer Millerwise, deputy communication director for Bush-Cheney 2004.

How is Senator Kerry preparing for the final face-off? We'll be joined by Debra Deshong, senior Kerry campaign adviser.

President Bush and Senator Kerry are working the Southwest, pounding their messages home in the run-up to the third debate. How will this head to head showdown affect the race? FOX News political analysts Juan Williams and Rich Lowry join the debate.

Lines go round the block to get sinfully delicious sweets from her New York bakery. Now you can prepare some of their scrumptious deserts. Magnolia Bakery's Allysa Torey shares her secrets.

What will each presidential candidate bring to the final debate face-off? We'll ask Dick Morris, author of "Because he Could."

How will the third debate measure up to the other two Bush-Kerry match ups? We'll ask Alan Schroeder, author of "Presidential Debates."

Scott Peterson's defense starts presenting their case for the first time. How will attorney Mark Geragos convince jurors his client is innocent? We'll ask criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor Joseph Tacopina.

And, you know him as the wacky father on the hit comedy "Malcolm in the Middle." Bryan Cranston returns to "FOX & Friends."
