Gingrich: Santa is who you need him to be

On tonight's show, The Final Question was initiated by Fox's Megyn Kelly who stirred up controversy by saying Santa is white and a New Mexico teacher who told a black student he couldn't be Santa because he isn't white.

We asked our guests to weigh in on the latest Santa drama and you may be surprised by how they respond.

Will the budget deal get through the Senate?

The budget battle moves to the senate, but will it attract enough Republicans to pass? And what does it say about our priorities?

In the Crossfire, we have Princeton philosophy professor Cornel West, and Ross Douthat, a conservative New York Times columnist. Tonight's show will be hosted by Newt Gingrich and Stephanie Cutter at 6:30pm ET.

In the Crossfire: Cornel West and Bill Kristol

JOIN THE LIVE BLOG

A week out from the government shutdown deadline, the debate over Obamacare, the President’s signature health care reform law, continues to rage. After the Republican-led House passed a bill that would shut down the government and defund Obamacare, the next move rests with the Senate, where Majority Leader Harry Reid plans to remove the provision that defunds the law.

At the center of this debate: does the government have a responsibility to provide health care for its citizens? Author and professor Cornel West, who believes the law doesn’t go far enough, and The Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol, who would repeal the entire law, join hosts S.E. Cupp and Van Jones to debate Obamacare.

We want you to weigh in. Do you think the government has a responsibility to provide health care for its citizens? You can also join the conversation by tweeting with #Crossfire.
