The Big Tease

Our Starting Point Thursday... Wildfires across much of the country are chasing people from homes and destroying communities. Rob Marciano is live in Washington state with the latest.

Also, it feels more like the final weeks of the campaign, but we're looking beyond the heated exchanges between Romney-Ryan and Obama-Biden and looking at the issues and the budget that matter most.

7:30am ET - Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) and chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus

8am ET - Michael Crowley, deputy Washington bureau chief for Time magazine... he's got a new article looking at how Ryan helps, or hurts, Romney.

8:30am ET - Stephen Baldwin joins the mix, he's had some harsh words for Obama in the past, he'll tell us what he thinks of Romney-Ryan.

And... you don't want to miss the FIERCE FIVE, in studio talking to Soledad, in one of their best interviews yet! That's at 7:50am ET.

We'll also have the latest on the shooting at the Family Research Council and the outbreak of West Nile virus, plus all the day's top stories starting as always at 7am ET.
