The Supreme Court ruled today that federal authorities could prosecute sick people who use marijuana for medical purposes. With today's ruling, the focus will now shift to whether Congress will step in and pass a law of its own allowing the practice. Megyn Kendall has the details.

Senator Joe Biden (search) suggested yesterday that the Guantanamo Bay prison should be shut down, but Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Richard Myers (search), said the prison should remain open to hold combatants who know "no moral ground.” Bret Baier has the details.
Then, Dan Springer has a report from Washington state after a judge upheld the state's 2004 gubernatorial election, leaving Democrat Christine Gregoire (search) in her job for now. Republicans say they will protest the decision to the state Supreme Court.

About the Show
Anchored by Washington news veteran Brit Hume, "Special Report with Brit Hume" provides an in-depth look at the day's news and offers a daily topical discussion of political issues impacting the nation.
Hume serves as host to key newsmakers, political pundits and FOX News contributors exchanging views about political matters from taxes and Social Security to international affairs and the political scandal of the day.
Hume brings a historical perspective to the political scene that is rarely rivaled. Born and raised in Washington, D.C., he has covered the policies, procedures and players in the national game called politics for more than 30 years. The Baltimore Sun referred to him as "the very personification of the political establishment."
Each program features a two-minute segment called The Grapevine, which reels off the latest outrageous news nuggets, political poll results and in-the-Beltway gossip that viewers will not see on any other news program. The New York Daily News describes The Grapevine as a must see that, "will make you sound smart around the water cooler… the next day."
FOX News' Team Washington provides live reports from the White House, Capitol Hill, the Supreme Court and key federal agencies. Seasoned correspondents, including Carl Cameron, Wendell Goler and Major Garrett, explore political hot spots, races and legislative battles being waged around the nation and abroad.
Hume wraps up each program with a lively roundtable discussion featuring Mara Liasson of National Public Radio, Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard and Mort Kondracke of Roll Call.
And more people watch FNC's Primetime than all of the cable news competition combined!
