Hi everyone,  

Lawmakers are back on Capitol Hill, dealing with an auto industry that’s running on empty. Democrats want to use part of the $700 billion Wall Street bailout to help Detroit's Big Three automakers. The White House says the money should come from another program already OK'd by Congress. What will it mean for you if the automakers fail? Jim Axelrod takes a look.

 

There was a "defining moment" today in the Chicago transition office of President-elect Barack Obama. That's where he met with his former presidential rival, Sen. John McCain. The men say they plan to work together to "fix up the country." Dean Reynolds takes a look at what that might mean.

 

Mark Cuban, the owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks is playing defense, denying allegations of insider trading. The Securities and Exchange Commission alleges the billionaire used confidential information on a 2004 stock sale to avoid more than $750,000 in losses.  Investigative correspondent Armen Keteyian has the latest.

 

In Southern California, calmer winds are helping efforts to contain three wind-swept wildfires. But nearly 1,000 homes have been destroyed in five counties, and today, many returned to find charred ruins where their homes once stood. John Blackstone reports.

 

Plus: there's new hope for the thousands of Americans living with cystic fibrosis. CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta tells you why people with the lung disease are breathing clearer and living longer.

 

I hope you'll join us.
