Tuesday's AC360 opened with Breaking News (a much overused term, IMO) about how Obama intends to bring the Clinton team on board. Really the story didn't need 12 minutes of coverage and discussion. The answer was simple......he's buying them. Candy Crowley said it wasn't unusual and Arianna Huffington said Obama had to do it, so again I say Breaking News?
Digging Deeper had panelists Roland Martin, Tony Perkins (a personal favorite for many of you) and Rev.Al Sharpton. The discussion got a little personal when Anderson's afterlife came into question. Take a look.
Gary Tuchman filed another report on the flooding in the Midwest, this time from Winfield, Missouri. How amazing was it to see the homes with their own levee systems holding back the flood waters? Fishing from your front porch and thousands of sandbags? Incredible.
Next up was the Don Imus story. Hold on to your horses, I've got a highlight on that too. God bless Dick Gregory for giving us something to laugh about in a story that I really didn't give a whit about.
The program closed with the Pregnancy Pact (I'm very over that story) and Erica doing the 360 Bulletin, welcome back EH....we missed you.
Yes, it's the night I won (January 14th). And did I get a stink'in tee shirt? Nooooooo. But I do have a little secret to share with you. All Things Anderson has it's own tee shirt, eat your heart out Anderson Cooper. We send our tees out to all the wonderful AC360 personalities who do question and answer sessions with us. I've received many thank yous for our little gift, but only one person has fessed up to wearing his. Who, you ask? My good buddy Mike Watkiss wears his on a regular basis. What a guy!
I have a few things to share with you tonight. First a short video that someone took of AC entering the Time Warner building.
And one more of John King and Dana Bash's May wedding. What a gorgeous couple and a very beautiful setting. Best wishes to the happy couple.
That's it for me for now. I hope to see you back here tonight.~Phebe
