Episode Summary

Social Security & Survival
President Bush has an ambitious plan to remake Social Security through the creation of personal retirement accounts. Can the nation afford his plan? Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill was forced out of the administration for opposing the tax cuts. First Up this week, Tucker conducts a rare interview with the dangerously plain-spoken O'Neill on the fiscal and economic implications of the Bush proposal.

On our Plus 2 segment Tucker is joined by David Frum of National Review and the American Enterprise Institute and Katrina vanden Heuvel of The Nation in a discussion of the Social Security issue, the nomination of Alberto Gonzalez for U.S. Attorney General and other developments.

Why did so many animals survive the South Asia tsunami? Numerous reports have suggested that sharper senses alerted animals - from elephants to snakes - to the impending disaster. But is that really the case? Do animals have a "sixth sense?" On our Back Page Tucker asks Dr. Michael Fay, who is a conservationist with the National Geographic Society and the Wildlife Conservation Society. A lifelong naturalist, Dr. Fay is most famous for walking 2,000 miles across Africa in 1997.moreless
