The news begins anew with "Studio B"...

• State of the Union Preview

President Bush is preparing for tomorrow night's State of the Union address. Iraq and social security are expected to be a major focus of the speech. How has the speech been rewritten since Sunday's elections in Iraq? And what are the Democrats saying about it already?

We'll get a preview of the speech preparations from our own Wendell Goler at the White House.

Plus, what do Republicans and Democrats hope to achieve after the speech tomorrow night? We'll debate it with FOX News Contributor and "National Review" editor Rich Lowry and Jeff Zeleny, National Political Correspondent for the "Chicago Tribune."

• Death Benefits to Increase?

We'll go live to the Pentagon where officials are said to be working on a plan to increase the amount of money given to the families of service members who were killed in combat zones since 2001. The increase would be retroactive and could involve up to $250,000 for those who've lost loved ones. FNC's Bret Baier will be here with a report.

• Jackson Case: Day Two

It's the second day of the highly anticipated Michael Jackson child molestation case. We'll go live to Santa Maria, California for the latest.

• Tsunami Disaster -- New Video

We'll have unbelieveable home video to show you of the monster tsunami taken as it hit the Sri Lankan city of Banda Acheh. Wait till you see this!
