Topics and Guests for January 26

Watch "The Big Story" weekdays at 5 p.m. ET

The president may have a clear vision of the world and the future of America, but he still has to navigate the ship of state around the rocky shoals of politics.

Will politics scuttle the president's agenda? We'll ask Juan Williams, senior correspondent for National Public Radio and FOX News contributor, and Dan Schnur, Republican media consultant.

President Bush pointing out how far Iraqis have come as they prepare for a democratic election. But terrorists are vowing to kill Iraqis who vote. Will intimidation rule the day when the polling sites open and will Iraq be safe enough on Sunday for a fair election? That's the big question for Michael Rubin, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and former political adviser to the Coalition Provisional Authority.

The French bust a major terror network, arresting four more suspects believed to be planning attacks in Iraq. Is Europe a breeding ground for terrorists? We'll ask Lorenzo Vidino, deputy director at the Investigative Project.

The Senate confirms the president's pick for secretary of state. But has Democrats' delay damaged Condoleezza Rice's (search) reputation? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from Bob Beckel, Democratic strategist, and Genevieve Wood, Republican strategist.

Plus, why is Ted Turner (search) comparing FOX News Channel to Adolph Hitler? That's the big question for Reese Schonfeld, co-founder of CNN and author of "Me and Ted."

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