Topics and Guests for November 2

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

The Senate returns to its daily work after Democrats enacted a rare parliamentary rule forcing a private session of the chamber so senators could speak in secret about pre-Iraq war intelligence. Was this a political stunt by Democrats, as Republicans are charging? We'll get fair and balanced reaction from Democratic strategist Bob Beckel and Republican attorney Chris Horner.

Then, a manhunt is underway in South Carolina after two violent inmates escaped from a maximum-security prison. What can police do to track the men down? We'll ask former D.C. homicide detective Rod Wheeler.

And as the NBA season kicks off, so does their new dress code. What would some of the legendary basketball greats have said about these new rules? John Taylor, author of "The Rivalry," weighs in.

Plus, we'll be joined by Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who met with Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito (search) on Capitol Hill today.

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