Topics and Guests for October 27

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

Harriet Miers (search) withdraws her nomination to be a U.S. Supreme Court justice in the face of strong criticism from President Bush's most conservative supporters. Who will Bush pick next?

We'll get reaction from:
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.
Terry McAuliffe, former DNC chair
Joe Trippi, Democratic strategist
Genevieve Wood, Republican strategist and former RNC spokesperson

Then, Harriet Miers now joins a list of 34 other Supreme Court nominees who have not succeeded for one reason or another. Former federal Judge Robert Bork came under attack when he was nominated to the high court by President Reagan. The Senate voted against his nomination in 1987. He joins us with reaction to Miers' withdrawal.

And, will Miers nomination withdrawal add to the political troubles of the Bush administration? Ann Coulter, author of "How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must)," weighs in.

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