British Prime Minister Tony Blair (search) delivered the summit's closing statement saying he achieved all the goals he set for this gathering, though there were some compromises.

Then, Major Garrett looks at latest news in the battle over the next Supreme Court nominee, including the fight among women's groups over whether it's more important for the nominee to be a woman or a moderate.
And police today raised the death toll to more than 50 from London's terrorist bombings, but said they hadn't yet been able to reach all of the dead. British law enforcement continues to investigate the horrific acts of terror. Jonathan Hunt reports from London.
Also, commuters reluctantly returned to the Underground, but buses and subways carried fewer riders than normal in the aftermath of four rush-hour blasts. Amy Kellogg talks to some of the commuters after yesterday’s attack.
And Steve Brown has the details of the Central American Free Trade Agreement (search) (CAFTA) that will signal the eventual end of sugar subsidies that have propped up the U.S. sugar industry and hurt industries that use sugar.

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!
