Terror chief Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (search) declares war on democracy. How bad will the violence get before Iraqi elections? That's the big question for retired U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. Oliver North, host of "War Stories."

Plus, the White House gets set to ask Congress (search) for an additional $80 million for funding military missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. Is the price tag too high?

And, Hillary in 2008? Sen. Clinton, D-N.Y., is looking to find "common ground" on the divisive issue of abortion. Is she setting herself up to run for president? We'll ask Republican strategist Jim Dyke and former Sen. Dennis Deconcini, D-Ariz.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
