This holiday week, the world's been hard at work. In Washington, President Bush stares down his critics and commutes Scooter Libby's sentence. In Great Britain, shocking news that doctors are prime suspects in the bomb plots.

Out on the campaign trail, Bill barnstorms for Hillary to mixed results. Obama's dollars soar but will that translate to votes? On the flip side, there was a reversal of fortune for McCain. Money is running out.
