FROM Harriet Sherwood
US Foreign Policy Seen from Foreign Shores For tonight's final debate , President Obama and Governor Romney will be seated tonight at a small table with Bob Schieffer of CBS News. It's a lax format, and although Schieffer just might let them pivot to the economy, women's issues or unemployment, the major topic is foreign affairs. Does China care about economic threats? Has Israel's Netanyahu tried to swing the election? Is Iran anxious about an attack? What about Syria and the Arab Spring? We hear voices from around the world and update one subject that's almost guaranteed to arise: the deadly attack in Benghazi.
NATO Strikes Directly at Gadhafi After two strikes on Moammar Gadhafi's headquarters in three days, Libya claims NATO is trying to assassinate its leader. NATO has confirmed the strikes , saying that the target was "a communications headquarters used to coordinate attacks on the civilian population." Harriet Sherwood is in Tripoli for the Guardian in Britain.
Political appointments and the reshaping of the judiciary President Trump has the chance for a long-term impact -- not just on the US Supreme Court, but on the entire federal court system. And his nominees are likely to get the support of a massive spending campaign by donors who don't have to reveal their names. Can President Trump "pack" the federal court system?
The President and America's infrastructure: Bait and switch? President Trump's $1 trillion infrastructure proposal may not be what it seems. We look at the prospects for much-needed improvements in roads, bridges and airports.
Trump's opening offer: Making some of America 'great again?' A massive increase for the Pentagon at the expense of domestic programs. We hear about winners and losers in the President's first proposed budget.
