Wild Winter Weather: The severe weather hitting the West Coast is going from bad to worse as floods are causing mudslides (search) that have left three people dead and many homes destroyed. We're live with the very latest.

Iraq Readiness Debate: Is the Iraq plan on track? With Iraqi elections coming up in eighteen days, should the Bush administration stay the course or consider a delay? We’ll ask Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters, retired U.S. Army and author of the book "Beyond Baghdad: Postmodern War and Peace" and Michael O’Hanlon senior fellow in foreign policy studies at the Brookings Institution. Plus, we’ll take you live to Pentagon briefing with Donald Rumsfeld (search) and we’ll have a live report from the frontline in Iraq.

Protecting Children? Perverted-Justice.com (search), is getting some attention for the questionable tactics they use to “out” child predators. The group searches Internet chat rooms looking for likely predators and if they identify a suspect, they follow up with an entrapment-like phone call or set up a meeting for an on-camera sting operation. Is the group going too far or are their actions justified? We’ll debate with Xavier Von Erck who runs Perverted-Justice.com and Julie Posely, a cyber crime fighter who opposes the group’s tactics.

Divine Assistance: Were you a bit too generous over the holidays? Are those credit card bills (search) making you cringe? We’ll get some advice on who you can turn to for financial guidance — it’s not your usual credit counselor. We’ll talk to Howard Dayton, CEO and co-founder of Crown Financial Ministries.
