Topics and Guests for December 15

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

Sunnis, Kurds and Shiites turn out in high numbers to vote in Iraq's historic parliamentary elections. If all goes well, U.S. officials hope the vote will set the stage for a troop reduction in Iraq. FOX's David MacDougall is live with the latest.

Then, a new FOX poll shows the majority of Americans don't think the new Iraqi government is ready to fight terrorism on its own. We'll get reaction from Noah Feldman, a former constitutional consultant to the interim Iraqi government and author of "What We Owe Iraq."

And, lawmakers in the House are getting fired up over a plan to crack down on illegal immigration. Republicans say it will help cut the flow if illegal immigrants into the U.S. But Democrats say it doesn't adequately deal with the millions of illegal immigrants who have already made it across the border. Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, weighs in.

Plus, why is an NAACP leader accusing Philadelphia Eagle Donovan McNabb of playing the race card? We'll ask Niger Innis, national spokesperson for the Congress of Racial Equality.

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