‘FOX & Friends First’ (6 a.m. ET)

The fall campaign season is here and both President Bush (search) and Sen. John Kerry (search) are taking swipes at each other on the stump. But will the political punches attract voter support, or send them packing?

Plus, fierce clashes between al-Sadr's militia and U.S. forces have many wondering what it will take to permanently stop the violence in Iraq. We’ll get insight from Stefan Halper, senior fellow of international studies at Cambridge University and co-author of "America Alone."

And, when Bill Baker, author of “Lighthouse Island” and president of New York’s public television station, wants to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city, he has the perfect place to go.

‘FOX & Friends’ (7 a.m. ET)

President Bush picks up some points in the polls, but he has yet to secure the 270 electoral votes needed to lock in a White House win. We’ll examine the recent candidate poll positions with independent pollster, Scott Rasmussen.

Plus, the presidential campaign season is heating up and even though some polls have President Bush in a double-digit lead over John Kerry, does anyone have a true advantage? Tony Blankley, editorial page editor for The Washington Times, weighs in.
