February 25, 2007
Our guests this week include:
• Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
• Governor Ed Rendell (D-PA)
• Governor Rick Perry (R-TX)
War opponents on Capitol Hill are looking to end the war in Iraq with binding legislation, and the British announced this week that they are beginning to withdraw troops from Iraq.
As it loses support at home and abroad, how much longer does the Bush administration have to stabilize Iraq and can the military surge still work? And what can the U.S. still do diplomatically to pressure the Iranians to stop their nuclear development? For answers, we will speak with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
We will also take a closer look at the issues affecting Americans across the country with two of the nation’s most influential governors, Rick Perry (R-TX) and Ed Rendell (D-PA). Gov. Perry’s recent controversial decision to mandate the HPV vaccine to help fight cervical cancer drew flak from many conservatives in Lone Star State. Is the decision to mandate the vaccine for all 12-year-old girls in his state based on sound science, and will it promote pre-marital sex as opponents allege? Additionally, we will discuss Gov. Rendell’s comprehensive plan to expand health insurance coverage in his state.
Then, a report on the controversy surrounding the miracle child, Baby Amillia, who was prematurely born at only 21 weeks back in October and sent home from the hospital this week. Does her survival have the potential to inflame the abortion debate by raising new questions about when a fetus is viable?
Our panel will discuss the Clinton/Obama fight and the British plans to withdraw troops from Iraq. Joining us will be Fred Barnes and Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard, Juan Williams of National Public Radio and Elisabeth Bumiller of the New York Times.
Plus, a special Academy Awards-themed Power Player this week with the true-life hero portrayed in the new hit movie Breach, the man who brought down the worst spy in U.S history. We speak with former FBI operative Eric O’Neill.
