Tonight, we've learned new details on President-elect Barack Obama's meeting with President Bush in the Oval Office.
Sources on the Obama transition team say Mr. Obama urged Pres. Bush to take action to help the U.S. auto industry.
Here's a big reason why: 1,900 hourly workers are getting laid off at GM. That's on top of the 3,600 last week. And, shares of GM have fallen to their lowest level since World War Two.
America's so-called "big three" automakers (GM, Ford & Chrysler) are hurting badly. But should the U.S. government bail them out? We'd love to hear your thoughts.
A source tells CNN that Obama also talked with Pres. Bush about the need for a second stimulus package and an aid package for homeowners facing possible foreclosure.
And on this Veterans Day we're looking at Obama's battle plans for Iraq and Afghanistan. No new president has ever had to face so much on the job. CNN's National Security Analyst Peter Bergen has written a letter to Obama on how to rescue the war in Afghanistan. CLICK HERE TO READ BERGEN'S LETTER
Also tonight, President Bush talks with CNN's Heidi Collins. Hear what he says he regrets about his presidency and what he plans to do after he leaves the White House.
