Politics and economics go hand-in-hand this week, as lawmakers continue to debate the government's $700 billion bailout plan. Leaders from around the world are in New York, for the United Nations General Assembly. And the first presidential debate, between Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Barack Obama (D-IL), is this week.

Ken Rudin, NPR's political editor — and our Political Junkie, will join us, as he does every Wednesday, to take us through the latest news. (Because Neal is in transit to Phoenix, from where we'll broadcast tomorrow, Lynn Neary, a correspondent in NPR's Arts and Information Unit, will host.) "Will Ken still have a trivia question, even though there is a substitute host?" Yes.

If you have questions about the debates, leave 'em here. How do you think it will go?
