Forgiveness: Has First Lady Laura Bush accepted Teresa Heinz Kerry’s apology for the remarks she made to USA Today (search) about the First Lady’s never holding a “real job?” We’ll ask Mary Matalin, senior Bush-Cheney campaign advisor and Chris Lehane, a Democratic political consultant.

Cell Phone Obstacles: With the election fast approaching, pollsters are pulling out all the stops to get the latest public opinion numbers. But some polltakers are getting bad connections when trying to reach cell phone users.

Bush Bashing 101: Students who signed up for an English class at one California University are getting a lesson in political science instead. We have the story of a professor whose class assignments require criticism of the president.

Domestic Violence: There are some disturbing images from an Arab TV program being shown on networks in several Arab countries that purportedly teach men the proper way to beat their wives. We’ll ask Saudi Institute (search) scholar, Ali Al Ahmed, how this kind of disturbing TV programming makes it to air.

Also, an update on a story we did Wednesday:

We told you about some of the millions of Americans living abroad who are complaining of problems registering as absentee voters and getting ballots. Since then, the Pentagon has posted on its site a federal write-in ballot that civilians and military people overseas can use if their absentee ballots fail to arrive on time. 

Here is the link to the Pentagon’s website: www.fvap.gov/services/fwab.html.
