Hello everyone. Long time no blog. Hard to believe it has been two weeks since I have blogged. To make up for this AC 360 was on live for 2 hours Friday night to make up for the time I missed so it would seem. With Friday being the 3rd anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Gustav heading NOLA's way it probably does not surprise anyone that Anderson was live from New Orleans. Without fail a breaking news story happens while AC is in NOLA to take most of the shows focus off of NOLA and on to something else and Friday night was no exception. There is alot to cover so let's get started.
Obama – Biden responded by saying they were happy in the historic nature of the VP choice. David Gergen, John King, Alex Castellanos, Paul Begala join Anderson to talk about Palin choice.
Dana Bash took a look at McCain and Palin out on the campaign trail. Watching it, I thought the two seemed so odd together.
Amy Holmes, Tony Perkins, James Carville talk McCain’s choice.
Anderson is joined by David Gergen, Amy Holmes, Joe Johns and Paul Begala. Throughout the night points made by the Gerg, Paul and James hit the nail on the head for me. Never fear McCain/Palin fans, I cannot vote so the opinions expressed in this post are that of a frustrated outsider who has no say in the matter.
After the Democratic convention is there Party unity among the Democrats. Tom Foreman took a look. Anderson talked to James Carville about the unity of his party
Is a NOLA ready? – Anderson took a look at the new levees that have been built in the last three years. The work on these levees is not suppose to be complete until 2011. The levees are now 15 feet high and are set deep underground. The levees should hold under a Category 2 storm or lower. Unfortunately according to Chad Myers, Hurricane Gustav may become a category 4 storm at some point.
Gary Tuchman took at look at a nation divided over the Clinton/Obama supporters. A lot of Clinton supporters seemed to have come over to the Obama side. Gary Tuchman spoke with many people throughout the country during convention.
In hour number 2, The Gerg, Roland Martin and Amy Holmes talk with Anderson about the Democratic Convention.
That is it for me. I will be back next Friday night. Have an amazing week everyone ~ Sapphire
