CBS Evening News with Katie Couric E-Mail Alert


Hi everyone,


President-elect Barack Obama called on Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to resign today, one day after the governor was arrested and accused of trying to sell Mr. Obama’s old Senate seat. And a growing chorus of politicians is calling for Blagojevich’s resignation or impeachment – and for a special election to fill the Obama seat. Dean Reynolds has the latest and Cynthia Bowers has a fascinating report on Chicago's notorious political past.


In Washington, Congressional Democrats and the White House have reportedly finalized a deal to keep struggling automakers afloat – to the tune of $15 billion.  But will Republican opponents succeed in blocking the legislation? Bob Orr has the full story.


Meanwhile, is the American auto industry’s problem its own fault? Some believe consumers simply don’t like the cars being turned out by the Big Three. Anthony Mason examines what the automakers have to do to win back their customers.


Two months ago, Seth Doane profiled workers at a struggling restaurant in Elkhart, Indiana. Back then, they were told to start looking for new jobs, the owners unsure if they could keep their business running. Tonight, Seth returns to Elkhart, to check up on the workers, in the latest installment of our special series, "The Other America."


Finally tonight: On Jan. 20th, the Obama Family will make history moving into the White House. Tonight, Jim Axelrod will report on a little-known, but remarkable twist to that story that you won’t want to miss.


See you tonight,


Katie Couric
