The war of words over Iraq continues to heat up. Now, Democratic National Committe chairman Howard Dean is comparing the war in Iraq to the Vietnam war. And Dean says the U.S. is not going to win the war in Iraq. The former presidential candidate made his comments on a San Antonio radio station yesterday. He also went on to say that "the idea that the United States is going to win the war in Iraq is just plain wrong."
Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman charges that Dean's statement "sends the wrong message to our troops, the enemy, and the Iraqi people."
Dean is also criticizing what he called President Bush's "permanent commitment to a failed strategy" and is calling for withdrawal from Iraq to "take the targets off our troops' back."
We'll debate Dean's words and his political strategy with radio talk show host and FNC contributor Michael Reagan.
Plus, as we've been saying it really could happen to you! We continue to follow a compelling eminent domain case in Florida. Tonight, we'll meet James Webb, from Citirise, one of the development partners involved in the case.
Also, we'll talk with author and former LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman about the Stanley Tookie Williams clemency case. California's governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is just two days away from the private clemency hearing. Will Tookie be executed one week from today?
And later, is the observance of Kwanzaa a platform for racial hatred? That's what the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson is claiming. We'll find out why when he joins us this evening.
These stories and much more ... don't miss "Hannity & Colmes" tonight at 9 p.m. ET!

About the Show
Fast-paced and hard-hitting, "Hannity & Colmes" brings viewers a heated discussion in a nightly face-off. Relishing in controversial topics, personalities and social issues, conservative radio commentator Sean Hannity and liberal radio personality Alan Colmes offer their points-of-view in an often animated, always compelling debate.
But, unlike similar debate shows — which often appear scripted — "Hannity & Colmes" conducts a live, spur of the moment deliberation on politics and social topics. Also, differentiating the show is its dedication to "move away from the Beltway," bringing audiences an alternative discussion program without the "in" comments.
Adding fuel to the fire, several high-profile guests have joined the program on a wide-range of topics.
"With guests who are 'in the middle of the fight,' we're able to hear their point-of-view on the topics, as well as advance our own feelings," said Hannity.
"Believe it or not, I agree with that statement," quipped Colmes.
