Topics and Guests for February 23

Weekdays at 3 p.m. in the East and high noon in the West!

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

Water, water everywhere! The Golden State is enduring a soaking this winter that just won't quit and the Highland Park area hasn't seen this much rain in 100 years! The storms have washed out homes, roads and even brought death to California residents. When will the weather situation improve? We'll go LIVE to Highland Park, California for a report.

Then, President Bush continues his European tour and his meetings with some of his toughest international critics. Mr. Bush met with German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder today in Mainz and he's scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin tomorrow.

Are Mr. Bush's fence-mending efforts already paying diplomatic dividends? We'll get a LIVE report from James Rosen at the State Department.

Plus, we'll look ahead to the president's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin tomorrow. Is Mr. Bush increasingly unhappy with his Russian counterpart? What can we expect from their sit down? We'll get a preview when Shepard talks with Ted Galen Carpenter, Vice President for Defense and Foreign Policy Studies at the Cato Institute (search).

And later, jury selection in the Michael Jackson trial is proceeding at surprisingly steady pace. Our own Trace Gallagher brings us the latest from Santa Maria, California.
