September 30, 2007

Our guests this week include:

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), DSCC Chairman
Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.), Minority Whip
David Yepsen, Des Moines Register Chief Political Correspondent
James Pindell, Boston Globe New Hampshire Political Correspondent

The battle on the Hill shifts from the Iraq front to the home front as both sides in the House and Senate focus on children’s healthcare. Congress has passed a bi-partisan bill to expand and extend the States Children’s Health Insurance program while President Bush promises a veto. Democrats suggest the president isn’t ready to fight for America’s Children. The White House says Democrats are just trying to score political points while disguising an expansion of socialized medicine. We’ll talk with the No. 2 Republican, Sen. Trent Lott, and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman, Charles Schumer.

Then, a little more then 100 days before the first caucuses and primaries, the presidential contenders are taking the gloves off. We’ll put our microscope on the first two key states Iowa and New Hampshire with two authorities from each state: the Des Moines Register’s David Yepsen and the Boston Globe’s James Pindell.

Plus, the Democratic contenders begin to take aim at Hillary Clinton. Our panel will discuss this week’s presidential debate and the latest happenings on Capitol Hill. Joining us for the always lively discussion will be:

Brit Hume, of FOX News
Mara Liasson, of National Public Radio
Juan Williams, of National Public Radio
Bill Kristol, of Weekly Standard

Finally, our power player of the week is honoring America’s heroes, Honor Flight Founder, Earl Morse.
