In the shadow of last week's U.N. Security Council meeting and anti-war protests around the globe, the Bush administration hammers out plans for a new U.N. resolution and works with Turkey. Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times has that story. And then there were...? The Democratic field for president swells again and again. Gloria Borger of U.S. News takes a look at the field and how the Democrats are grappling with the war issue. The states are suffering from the nation's economic woes and not getting much help from the federal government. For that story we turn to David Broder of the Washington Post. And, Michigan's affirmative action policies have the support of many major corporations and former military leaders but not the Bush administration. Linda Greenhouse of the New York Times reports on that case. Moderator: Gwen Ifill. [26 minutes]
