Episode Summary

The Death Penalty & Major Bob Bateman
On an extended Plus 2 segment, Tucker is joined by Michelle Cottle of The New Republic and David Frum of National Review and the American Enterprise Institute in a wide-ranging discussion about imposing the death penalty based on circumstantial evidence, prompted by the Scott Petersen sentence.

On our Back Page Tucker speaks with Army Major Bob Bateman, who has served years in the military, primarily as part of the policy and strategy makers in the Pentagon. He was at LAX Airport when an email notified him that he would shortly be shipping out for a year's tour in Iraq. How does he feel about this news? As a soldier? As a young family man? As someone whose 20- year career in the military was soon to end? Tucker engages Bateman, a personal friend, in a revealing conversation on his forthcoming assignment.

And in his last show of 2004, Tucker adds a holiday touch in a chat with and performance by the Eric Felton Quartet, a Washington-based jazz combo.moreless
