Topics and Guests for February 15

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

To help stem the violence in Iraq, President Bush (search) asks Congress for another $82 billion — most of it for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. We'll get reaction from Jed Babbin, former deputy undersecretary of defense.

Sen. John Kerry thinks the U.S. would be "far better off" if he had won the White House in November. Sour grapes, or something to consider? That's the big question for Fred Malek, campaign manager of former President George Bush, and former Rep. Martin Frost, D-Texas.

Meanwhile, President Bush is trying to force the Senate's hand by re-nominating 20 judicial candidates, several who were blocked by Democrats last year. Will the president get his judicial nominees approved? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from Victoria Toensing, former Department of Justice official, and Chris Lehane, Democratic strategist.

Can Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., win the presidency in 2008? That's the big question for Jennifer Senior, contributing editor for New York magazine.

Plus, when the breadwinner is off fighting a war, military families can have trouble making the rent and keeping the lights on. Now, a new Ohio law would make it illegal to evict the families of troops serving overseas. FOX News' Heather Nauert investigates the Ohio Patriot Plan.

And, Michael Jackson's child molestation trial is postponed, after he's rushed to the hospital. We'll get the legal lowdown from Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News senior judicial analyst.

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