Week in the News

This was an action packed week in the news. President Bush delivered his State of the Union Address. Now, the tough part: selling it to the American people and Congress. The president talked about education, energy, and healthcare but the fog of war looms large.

This week, more suicide bomb attacks in Baghdad. And the president's choice, to lead US forces Lt. General John Petraeus said there's no timetable to bring the troops home.

Hillary Clinton is off and running for president. 2004 nominee John Kerry bows out of the hunt. Ford Motors reports record losses and the race for the Oscars is on.
