War on the Homefront: Democrats and the White House ratchet up the rhetoric over Iraq, as the Pentagon extends tours of duty for thousands of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. With Democratic leaders set to agree on a final Iraq funding bill — which is likely to include a timeline to bring the troops home — and President Bush vowing a veto, can both sides come to a compromise? And with Attorney General Alberto Gonzales set to appear before Congress next week in testimony that could decide his fate, what is next for the U.S. Attorneys controversy? We will speak exclusively with Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. Lindsey Graham, a key Republican on the Armed Services Committee back from a recent trip to Iraq.
Plus: The explosive debate that erupted after that callous comment from radio shock jock Don Imus.

Also, is there a double standard when it comes to who is allowed portray women in a degrading manner? We'll speak exclusively with a key figure in the debate, Reverend Al Sharpton.
Our panel will then discuss Sen. John McCain's Iraq offensive this week as he seeks to revive his presidential campaign, as well as all the latest political news. Joining us will be:
