On the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric -- Concerns about deflation and what this means for you...Plus... Senator Joe Liberman's first interview since the election...

Tonight On The CBS Evening News

Here's an early look at what we are working on for tonight's broadcast from Anchor and Managing Editor, Katie Couric:

Hi everyone,
Another ominous sign today that the economy is slowing: Consumer prices sank by a record amount last month - and that raises concerns about deflation. Falling gas prices played a big role in the decline. But the lower prices don't have Americans buying - and that's especially true in the auto industry. Thousands of un-sold cars are now clogging up ports on the West Coast. And retailers are offering huge incentives to lure customers. Ben Tracy reports.

Meanwhile, the heads of the Big Three automakers were back on Capitol Hill in search of a $25 billion bailout from Congress. Bob Orr sits down with GM CEO Rick Wagoner to hear why his company is asking for a lifeline to help them stay in business.

Next, will Senator Hillary Clinton be nominated for secretary of state … or not? Some of former President Clinton's business deals and fundraising are under review, and Senator Clinton has yet to decide on the cabinet post. One position we do know about: former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle has been chosen to become Secretary of Health and Human Services. Chip Reid has the latest as the Obama administration takes shape.

Two weeks after Election Day, two Senate races are still undecided, meaning Democrats still have a shot at gaining a total of 60 seats, which would give them a filibuster-proof majority.
I'll speak exclusively tonight with Senator Joe Lieberman - who had been on the outs with Democrats for supporting John McCain. It's his first interview since the election, and you won't want to miss it.

Finally tonight: I sat down with a man who has made his living punching holes in conventional thinking. Tonight, best-selling Malcolm Gladwell explains why everything you think you know about what makes someone a success … might just be wrong.

See you later - and by the way, I'll be on The Late Show with David Letterman tonight, so don't forget to watch!

See you tonight!

IS ADULT ENTERTAINMENT GOOD FOR YOUR RELATIONSHIP? - Should couples use pornography to enhance sex and build your marriage? Will it help the relationship, or destroy it?
