Monday, Sept. 8: Price of Progress?

In his address to the nation Sunday night, President Bush (search) reaffirmed the United States’ commitment to Iraq and said the international community had a duty to make sure Iraq was stable so that the Middle East did not become an "exporter of violence and terror."

But how much will that stability cost? And how will the president’s request for $87 billion be spent? We’ll ask former presidential adviser David Gergen.

Plus, we’ll put Iraq in context of the wider war on terror and the latest threat from Al Qaeda with retired U.S. Army Col. David Hunt, FNC military analyst, and Bill Sammon, senior White House correspondent for the Washington Times.

Why is Arnold Schwarzenegger's campaign claiming that Calif. Gov. Gray Davis owes Arnold an apology? We’ll get a fair and balanced debate from David Bossie, GOP strategist, and Margie Omero, Democratic strategist.

A new series of sexually provocative ad campaigns are targeting America’s teens. Do they go too far? We’ll ask Janice Crouse of the Concerned Women of America; Frasier Seitel, marketing executive, and Susan Schulz, editor in chief of Cosmo Girl.

And, There's an unusual connection between two high profile cases: Kobe Byrant's cousin says convicted killer, Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, is innocent. Will he get a new trial? Lis Wiehl, FOX News legal analyst and former federal prosecutor, and Stephen Skoller, criminal defense attorney, join the debate.
